Casa Sucre building is located in Belgrano residential neighborhood, in Buenos Aires, in a two front lot.

From its origin the Project was conceived from three central themes cores.

The relationship between the gathering spaces and resting areas, the link between the experiences in covered spaces and the traditionally open areas, and the possible gradual dialogues between transparency and opacity, that is created in the buildings front, with a profound interior.

The building’s plan consists in two apartments per floor. In them, gathering areas (living room and integrated kitchen) were thought to be facing front, whilst the backside of the building was destined to the bedrooms. The plan design enhances shared experiences encouraging new forms of creating intimacy, not only by its distribution but also the size attribution for each space.

Each living room takes the hole unit width and links with a carpentry that enables the balcony fusion, creating a new transitional space between the open and the covered, between the outside and the inside.

The building’s facade accompanies this transitional process: the sliding panels, made of stretched fabric, while collaborating with thermic control, lightning, acoustic absorption, and energy savings, generate throughout the day, different dialogues between those inhabiting the building and the environment that contains it.
