The rationalist naval style building has a long history. The movement of its cornices and balconies are the result of typical strategies that emulate the movement of water and as a result a very unique architectural language of great aesthetic value. The existing building on the corner of the Plaza Mateo complex describes this modern language so characteristic of those days in the Rio de la Plata.
The proposal for Plaza Mateo emulates and reinterprets in a contemporary code this suggestive movement of naval rationalist lines through a language of altered pieces in variable directions. The scale of its heights is the result of an intimate relationship with the sizes of the parapet, lintels and cornices of the adjacent old building which is part of the complex.
The contrast of depths gives rise to chiaroscuro that reveals in its interstices the existence of hanging vegetation incorporated into the logic of movement of this skin. Movement that also dialogues emulating the waters of the Ramirez beach (Rodo Park) immediately in front of the project.
