Located within the first cordon of the Buenos Aires suburbs, the existing 1940 house was made up of a solid block on a single floor and the fragmented interior did not allow the entry of light or the connection with the outside. To reconfigure the pre-existence, the most rigid devices are concentrated to generate more flexible spaces. The ground floor space is divided into two longitudinal strips that differ in terms of programmatic activities, spatial situations and materialities. The most specific programs are then located on the strip on the left - garage, vertical circulation, bathroom and kitchen - while on the right the space is freed up, generating visual continuity and a large indeterminate space. To achieve this, a new independent structure of metal profiles is placed. The idea of uninterrupted space is also accentuated, generating a double height in the central space that connects the existing volume with the new construction. The new built volume is mounted on the existing one and is covered with three light metal roofs. The two at the ends tilt to let sunlight enter both the upper floor areas and the living room on the ground floor.

Formed by Lucila Ottolenghi, Natalia Kahanoff, Luciana Casoy y Florencia Lopez Iriquin in the City of Buenos Aires. His main interest lies in the realization of projects and materialization of single-family and collective housing, both in transformations of pre-existing and in new construction. His professional practice also addresses the field of teaching and both theoretical and practical research. It is a space for work and friendship that combines diverse but defined roles. Each project is taken as a field of inquiry to experiment with approach methods that allow heterogeneous results at all scales.
