Casa de Rentas de José Manuel Jorge, 1932. Francisco de Vittoria y Guido. The “Casa de Rentas de José Manuel Jorge” stands out amongst the architectural works of Alejandro Bustillo for its stylistic neutrality, its monotone color, and the subtle use of ornament. This building, located in the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires, is one of the few in the area that has been conserved in its original state. Paying homage to its initial design, the project sought to extend the preservation efforts into the interior. These efforts go beyond aesthetic choices in materials and the use of simple lines, to more structural level interventions in airflow, lighting patterns, and living dynamics. The harmonious encounters between what is original, what is restored, and what is new is emblematic of this apartment. A curve in the building’s interior wall is picked-up by the furniture and serves to soften pervasive straight edges, contributing to the overall balance of the space.
