Tucumán, Argentina.

Vittalia” is a medical practice building. It is by itself an innovation, offering comfortable space for practicioners in midtown Tucumán.

Some of its state-of-the-art features: patients tracking system, appointments management, cloud storage and appointment reminders.

The building’s facade had to reflect and represent those qualities, to differentiate services provided from those in nearby options. It is an unsurpassed location (157 Santiago Street, San Miguel de Tucumán).

The dominant concept here was one of “overlaping and uneven boxes”, materialised in H°A°, which convey a singular movement in the facade. The detail results in an extraordinarily dynamic piece.

The profiles are repeated in the party walls, strengthening the concept.

Given that it is a medical practice building, the balconies are characteristically technical. Hence, some panels in the facade are secluded by self-supporting micro perforated sheet iron. The whole design generates a feeling of fullness and emptiness, or light and shadow, granting a strong presence in its environment.
