The apartment complex TEMPORA I is located in Villa Carlos Paz, a low density zone with a strong neighborhood imprint. The project faced the challenge of deepening the densification of the area in the context of a low-rise housing with a clear urban identity.
Since a couple of years ago, the city has become into a high growth residence zone, generating in these last times an important population increase, the project was born from the interest of a group of young entrepreneurs to attack this problem.
The immediate surroundings of the land stand out for being a quiet place already consolidated, Tempora seeks to insert itself in that context in a silent way, avoiding the highlighting I have tried to fit in a subtle way.
The project includes three levels, those permitted by the area according to the building code, the ground floor which is removed from the municipal line to house the spaces for vehicles. The upper floor that flies over the compulsory retirement as much as allowed and the last level that holds the amenities, the solarium sectors and the swimming pool.
The morphology of the entire volume accompanied by its low height, makes it blend in with the old houses and villas on the block and throughout the neighborhood.
It was proposed that all the ground floor units have private patios, and a large longitudinal interior space was created that acts as a lung and living space for all the units, forming friendly visuals and good cross ventilation.
The three levels are linked by a concrete staircase, dematerialized, which was left in sight, appreciating the beautiful visuals of the mountains as you go up.
