Marcelo Spina Completes Multi-Family Housing Project in Argentina

SCI-Arc faculty member Marcelo Spina and partner Georgina Huljich of Los Angeles-based PATTERNS recently completed Jujuy Redux, a multi-family housing project in Rosario, Argentina.

Consisting of thirteen small, shared-floor units and a duplex organized in a cross-ventilated layout, the mid-rise apartment building proposes a subtle delineated mass, operating both at the scale of the entire volume and the scale of each apartment. Its flexible duality overcomes issues that exist with many mid-rise housing typologies, such as the occurrence of fixed, scalar transformations that play either with the envelope as detached from the units, or with the units alone.

The firm’s second commission for an apartment complex in Argentina, Jujuy Redux took four years to complete.
