This Chacarita small apartment, residual product of the fragmentation of a property built in the 50s in Buenos Aires, Argentina, forms an “ochava” on the first floor with visuals as open to the outside as exposed to the curious look from the street. These three factors, added to the will of the client to inhabit a luminous and flexible space, determine the project strategy.
