Estancia de Colonia Caroya
Enhancement of the Jesuit Estancia of Colonia Caroya in Cordoba, Argentina.
World Heritage for UNESCO.
A grid of fruit trees (peach trees) create the order and the limits of the site as well as restore a sense related to the fruit harvest and production of jams characteristic of the region.
At the same time, this grid serves as a filter before visitors discover the Estancia building itself.
The contest program includes a reception area, a bar, an exhibition room and services. It is organized under a concrete slab that emerges from the ground and remains below the level of the existing historic building.
