Text description provided by the architects. The project is located in the Barrio Pichincha district, located in the first ring road next to downtown Rosario, Argentina. The neighborhood has a long history of nightlife and recreation due to its proximity to Rosario Central Station. Over time, this characteristic began to diminish, giving rise to a neighborhood that is the typical middle-class neighborhood of Rosario, with low houses and limited traffic.

Among the strategies to achieve this, the break with the traditional repetition and stratification of floors, characteristic of most buildings in the city is noteworthy. Under this premise, there was a series of furnished rooms resulting from the creation of duplex apartments with larger surfaces. The singular value of this system is that, in addition to modifying the usual distribution of apartments with the bedrooms on the upper floor and the social area below, allowing the distribution of apartments in a cross, optimizing the advantage of having a corner . This distribution results in the preconceived boundaries of an apartment, where each floor faces a different orientation and a different street, thus achieving a feeling of greater breadth by recognizing the role of the corner in the development of the interiors of these apartments. with larger areas.

Finally, the morphological expression is configured by the diversity in terms of full and empty spaces, which results from the presence of the premises which occupy the interior. The size of the window chosen for each type of use, the variation of the exterior distribution reflect the uniqueness of the configuration of this proposal, generating an expression of diversity exacerbated in its facade due to an apparent lack of order.
