A house in front of the river or the offices of a shipyard?
In a corner facing the river and the Prefecture of San Isidro is located the house that would become the headquarters of the Shipyards SPI SA.
On the one hand, the distribution of the existing house was not adapted to the needs of an office building and at the same time, the project had to consider that in the future the construction with a very low budget should be adapted again to a detached townhouse.
On the other hand, the design challenge was how to insert an institutional building without breaking with the physiognomy of a traditional neighborhood of houses facing the river. With a double skin, it is possible to present a single volume, a white box that respects the morphology of the neighborhood and that transmits the values of the company that would contain.
