50-apartment block in Argentina’s capital city Buenos Aires reaches completion

Foster + Partners

Foster + Partners has completed its first project in Latin America – a 50-apartment block in Argentina’s capital city Buenos Aires.

The UK-based architecture practice said the Aleph Residences were part of the “reinvention” of the city’s former docks at Puerto Mdero.

The practice said: “Drawing on local architectural traditions, its apartments feature vaulted living spaces and deep, sheltered terraces that exploit the wonderful local climate and maximise views towards the city and Rio de la Plata.”

Brandon Haw, senior partner, Foster + Partners: “The Aleph is a building that is very much borne of its place.

“From the traditional Buenos Aires house, which takes advantage of the climate to combine outdoor with indoor living, to the industrial architecture legacy of the Puerto Madero District, the Aleph creates a wonderful new living environment that is unique to the Faena Arts District.”
