Rather than adopting a tabula rasa approach, which would erase the inherited urban and commercial real estate decisions colliding at the site, Asadero’s design was conceived as a series of formal, material and programmatic corrections to the existing conditions. The project presents a series of minimum interventions that expose those moments where different systems intersect by incorporating new materials and/or forms creating casual, unforeseen and ambiguous seating arrangements throughout the two floors. Therefore, Asadero can be seen as an ensamble of architectural elements built upon an additive process whichincorporated layers of objects inside the space resulting in a new dining experience that takes cues from the city of Buenos Aires at large, the client’s needs and the remains of a standard real estate development.
Designed in collaboration with Giusto Van Campenhout and IT MET studio.
