Located in a small town in the Province of Buenos Aires, the CCDH is a small office building for rent. The architecture is built on a 26m x 14,45 m on the sides and 372m2 of surface, settled within a suburban surroundings where low houses prevail. The building purpose along with lot performance, urban planning and construction codes determine the building's shape, which is a 7,70m x 18,80m x 8,50m prism.
The main action for the design was to settle the available ground plan on the corner, in order to capitalize the direct park and racetrack views, while moving the vertical circulation core and the access to building to the back of the property on Tres Sargentos Street.
The architect used a reinforced concrete structure with a 65 cm high perimeter beam and 25 cm high louvered blocks that bring gaps of about 7x 8 meters. The building envelope was made of brick, which was carefully applied according to its use in each parament. Therefore, brick works as a “bath curtain” in the centre, as a “parasol” in the staircase and as fence on the ground floor. All the project was thought based on brick measures in order to avoid their being cut.
Special attention are given to joint measures between bricks and their depth. Horizontal joints are 1cm thick, while those of 2cm were taken as 2,5 cm in order to hide the support mortar. Glass panes were covered with exterior roller shades made of black vinyl and polyester fabric punctured as a warbler, annulling the loss of the view and crossed ventilation, and at the same time reducing the rise of temperature due to solar radiation.
