This office building is located in Buenos Aires, near an old part of the city, La Boca, were the metal constructions are common. The idea was to have a simple building, that could melt into the neighborhood, with a low cost and a fast construction. So we use cheap materials, but exploring their plasticity, their potentialities. The facades are a game between the shown and the unshown, between transparent, translucid and opaque areas. The design of the building is the result of the relations between public and private, intimacy, known and unnoticed.
