Rinconada Margaritas is a vertical housing complex, set up with three buildings in a 10,126 sqm. site.
A fundamental part of the project lies on the site conditions, preserving a ravine with an important density of trees and plants.
The strategic emplacement of the buildings, leaves 80% of the site´s area for green areas and open spaces, this represents a privilege due its urban condition.
This strategy frees the space, creating areas that dialogue and integrate with the landscape, these way public spaces, gardens and the ravine; create daily encounters that allow collective coexistence.
On the other hand, the buildings orientation is working to achieve the largest percentage of views from the units.
The structural system is thought to deliver a greater privacy sensation from the interiors, and a result of the configuration of the units, crossed ventilation is achieved in all of them.
The concrete materiality on the buildings, along with the landscaping work, gives personality to the residential complex, keeping the site’s original atmosphere.
The disposition of the buildings inside the plot leaves a free space face to the street, which gives some respite to the neighborhood, which is of a lower height condition. Source by Luis Aldrete.
