Edificio Ocampo, Your Home in Height

Best Implemented Project of Residential or Mixed-Use Estate

About the project
Edificio Ocampo is located on a corner in the Buenos Aires suburbs, specifically in Ituzaingo, in an area that is in constant densification. This residential building with a public ground floor (containing different shops) was designed to embrace the corner and use all four facades and therefore their conditions, displaying daylight and views through all the openings. Using outdoor terraces as a morphological tool, an alternating system creates different apartments on each floor which emphasizes the heterogeneity that is not just formal but also programmatic. In its three-dimensional concrete system, there is an adjustment module that moves and changes the size of the apartments according to the number of residents, making each apartment type unique, this way we were able to propose 7 different ways of living. On street level the building conceded the statutory retreats to the city: 2260 ft2 are now public space.
