Nordelta Tigre Yacht Club House in Buenos Aires
On the outskirts of the city of Buenos Aires, the architects have developed the Nordelta Tigre Yacht Club House for the nautical neighborhood community of Nordelta in Tigre.
It is situated on a Peninsula with excellent views to the Yacht Club’s water channel, which connects to the Parana River.
The building was designed on two levels; the upper, with the best views for the social rooms and restaurant, whilst the secondary program such as storage, locker rooms and the gym are placed at the ground floor.
The ground floor access presents a double height ceiling that connects and visually integrates both levels.
While the ground floor placement follows the silhouette of the site, the first floor is rotated to catch the best orientation.
The roof plane opens to the views and the sun.
The main inspiration for the building’s morphology came from the geometric sail shapes of the America’s Cup vintage ships such as the ”Reliance“ designed by Nat Herreshoff in 1903.
The building’s structure is reinforced concrete, with exposed concrete facades, aluminum window frames and metallic solar shades.
Low-maintenance materials such as wood and concrete on floors and walls are also used in the interior of the building.
