Studio Ramos have designed an elegant yacht clubhouse on the riverside in Nordelta, Buenos Aires 

In a tranquil and calm location on the riverside, the yacht clubhouse, designed by studio Ramos, is an excellent example of concrete architecture at its best. 

The building is comprised of two levels; the upper level, housing the social rooms and restaurant offers stunning views over the water, and on the ground floor are the storage and locker rooms, as well as the gym 

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 architects took their inspiration from shipbuilding, with the design reflecting the geometric sail shapes of the Americas Cup vintage ships such as the Reliance, designed by Nat Herreshoff in 1903. 

The building 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.

 

The WAN Concrete in Architecture Award is now open for entries.
