To know the essence of the preexistence of this constructing we depend on its historical past narrated by the previous customers, aiming for the proposal being the following step within the evolution of this small home positioned close to the middle of Asunción on a plot of simply six meters width.

The unique development is from roughly 1930 within the suburban or semi-rural environment of the Assunción of that point, with just one bed room, a rest room, a front room and a small corridor the place the wooden range was.

Within the Nineteen Forties, two extra rooms have been added, extending the home linearly on the slim lot.

At first of the Nineties, a contemporary kitchen was added on the finish of the home, configuring the typology of a “sausage home”, however with the particularity that because of the narrowness of the lot the home didn’t have a gallery however as a substitute, the adjoining areas communicated open air.

In 2014, when the home was vacated, it was in a sophisticated state of decay, already uninhabitable.

Past the pathologies and practical deficiencies that we may discover, we sought to keep up the essence of the typology and consolidate it, whereas sustaining the constructing as an actual property product in an space that in the present day is of medium-high density with universities and public establishments in its environment.

For this, we determined to offer the home with a gallery and construct residences for college students on a prime ground, all with out compromising the previous foundations as a separate quantity of the home and with an impartial construction.

The highest ground is floating above the previous one, producing the gallery however in a method that enables the doorway of sunshine to the bottom ground from a number of angles in addition to the optimization of convection air flow.

The bottom ground was maintained nearly solely by reusing the supplies and with enhancements within the spatial distribution that allowed it to be enforce earlier than the market with out dropping its essence and the proof of the scars of extensions all through the years, seen within the distinction of the dimensions of bricks used.

The gathering of rainwater for irrigation and cleansing was included with the difference of some kambuchi (ceramic jugs), conventional parts of Paraguayan crafts that formally harmonize with the development and supply a contact of sustainability along with all of the previous bricks that grew to become new partitions, the tiles that got here to type a vertical backyard on the facade, braces changed into lintels and previous doorways changed into desks.

All betting on evolution as a substitute of the tabula rasa of a demolition.
