Buenos Aires (AR)

Prototype for an incremental social housing in the neighbourhood of La Matanza in Buenos Aires. Designed and built in collaboration with Achitects Without Borders Norway (AUG) and the Scarcity and Creativity Studio of the School of Architecture of Oslo.

The flexibility of the design allows the first-built prototype to be used as a care and support center for women victims of domestic violence. It has capacity for up to 12 hosts and 3 visiting professionals. This prototype is one of the 98 houses scheduled in the masterplan for the 30 000m2 plot developed by AUG.
