Area: 10,000 m2 (90,000 sf)
Location: Ramos Mejia, Province of Buenos Aires
Project Construction: 2002-2005
When the object of design is a building of this size, we had to consider many factors such as demand for apartments, building codes and regulations, location, the economics of investing, and of course, design.
This building is located in Ramos Mejia, a suburb of Buenos Aries. The market demanded one and two bedrooms apartments.
For this project, we looked for functional space over formal concept. The design goal was large apartments, comfortable balconies, abundant day light and open views. The distinctive character of the building in comparison with its neighbors produced a very good response from the market, and consequently a good economic return.
The rooftop terrace was designed as a place of encounter for the building residents. The footprint of the building is open on all 4 sides, letting the building open towards 2 centenarian palms, thus giving the name to the building: Palmeras de Ramos (Palms of Ramos).
