1. Preliminary Design

Exchange of views
with the Client and
the architect´s proposal

(The stages may vary according to the importance of the project) Based on the data of the site, orientation, elevation, studies on the location of trees, the program requirements (upon the client´s request and suggestions) the architect starts working on the decision he considers to be the most appropriate. There is an active interchange of views with the client and the design is reinforced by evaluating the site and the construction methods to complete the work. At this stage the basic and primary documentation are made: plans, sections, views, digital mock-ups and video.

2. Project

In Every
Single Detail

The preliminary design is reinforced by working out the details of construction, elaborating the construction logs, structure drawings, redesign, carpentry drawings, installation plans. The team works together with the engineers to obtain structures, thermal calculations and electrical sizing. In addition, calculations are made to define the budget of materials and the unions involved.

3. Management

Submission of

Necessary documentation must be submitted before different control bodies to obtain all the building permits and service connection. (College of Architects, municipalities, energy agencies).

4. Project Management

Start up

The correct completion of all construction processes is verified. In this phase the construction is periodically monitored, the quality of the materials used and the construction based on the schedule are controlled. The construction management is related to the logistics and resolution of tasks on the site and verification that the methods used are those contained in the project drawings. This task involves taking responsibility and acting as a mediator with the clients and agencies.

Argentinian architectures with brick – Book

Casa Rincón selected to be part of the selection of contemporary brick architecture works.

Argentinian architectures with brick.- Each work is the result of the crossing of tangible and intangible variables that very rarely can be synthesized to count in a coherent way once the work is finished. Casa Rincón is perhaps one of the most rational works of our office, a very conditioned project where, as seldom the improbable time-economy-environment-labor-future variables were imposed from the beginning, it is so because of the imposition of reason The BRICK prevailed in this project as the material that had to fulfill the function of enclosure and structure. Develop in this post each of the specific reasons that justified the choice of the BRICK would make it extremely long, no doubt those reasons and others such as history, uses and relevance are expanded and developed in a general and comprehensive way in a book that we consider It must be part of the reference biography. Casa Rincón has just been published with 37 other works built in the Country by BISMAN EDICIONES and the UM, compiled under the name Arquitecturas Argentinas con Brick. This post is our way of thanking the editorial team for including our work in a book that is much more than a catalog of works that we are honored to be part of and that we insist on recommending for its quality and “Thickness” of content.-
The work compiles an extensive panorama of new architecture built with bricks in the whole country. Produced by Bisman Ediciones and co-edited with the UNICER group and the University of Morón, it also has the support of the Catholic University of Córdoba. “Brick is the most validated building material by the collective imaginary. His image accompanies the architecture of the entire planet since the beginning of time and, in Argentina, has developed a vast tradition, which is deeply detailed in the exciting historical chapter that introduces this book and that has prompted us to edit this publication , paradoxically absent until now, ”they said from Bisman Ediciones. In addition, to this set of recent works is added an analysis of iconic brick constructions from the colony until 2003. This compilation was made by the prestigious specialized historian Norberto Feal. The book also includes a series of technical notes made by the Unicer Group, the Faculty of Architecture, Design, Art and Urbanism of the University of Morón and the Faculty of Architecture of the Catholic University of Córdoba.
