Adamo Faiden - Chalú house (recycled house), Buenos Aires 2007. Located in a dense, urban site, the new structure follows the footprint of the previous Chorizo house, creating an inner courtyard as a means to obtain privacy from adjacent buildings. Historically, locals used a blend of plaster stucco mixed with quartz stone as a means to reflect the sun and maximize light into the space. Due to budget constraints, the quartz was deemed unaffordable, so the architects gathered glass bottles and crushed them on-site to add to the plaster mix. The effect achieves an equal reflective quality, but also adds a subtle, yet noticeable greenish hue to the material.
