This development re-investigates the urban space of the typical Buenos Aires block and in the process of design, created a new building typology that takes the row-house that opens to the street and inverted it. The increased density in half the lot allows an inner-street, turning the focus away from the busy street into a private interior corridor. The design also nestles smaller units into the forms of larger one, creating open larger living areas with soaring ceiling, while still maximizing building area.
