We welcome you again Facades World, on the day of the date we ask you to stay tuned and well seated because we bring you the renovation of a building, a contemporary style construction which was undergoing certain changes over time and has reached what it is today. What do you think if we start? Here we go!
Contemporary style building updated
The original construction of building comes from the 40 years of Art Deco style and presents aspects such as ornamental ironwork, stained glass, and a hierarchical distribution by a central patio. Originally it was designed to function as public toilets, however, with the passage of time it was undergoing some modifications depending on the use that was given at the time and because of that it lost a bit of its original architecture.
The intervention converges aspects of contemporary architecture and it seeks to rescue the historical value that over time was losing the building. At the same time, we see how it was rehabilitated and new spaces for residential use were added to it.
The project understands the current need for use existing resources as much as the original construction is to generate a lower environmental impact and preserve the architectural value of the city. In order to preserve privacy in each of the departments, and to generate different visuals, a canceler was designed with angles and reflections, resulting in a complex of 12 departments of different designs and distribution.
