La Cándida by Adamo-Faiden 1

Argentinian architects Adamo-Faiden have completed a club house in the middle of a lake near Buenos Aires.

Containing a gym, spa and bar, the pill-shaped structure is connected to the shore by a semi-circular walkway.

The mosaic-clad club house serves a gated community called La Cándida, where the architects have already built a community centre. See our previous story.

Here's some more information from the architects:


La Cándida is a gated community built at the border of a route that links Buenos Aires to the seaside resorts of the Atlantic coast.

The property is axially aligned with an artificial lake, a semicircular portion of land at its extreme west became the area of intervention.

Confronting these conditions the project proposes two simultaneous actions: the augmentation of the lake and the construction of a pavilion isolated in its interior.

The two actions intend to invert the inertia of each element in order to become fused with the emergence of an experience specific to this new scenery.

Alongside the programs that configure the building - gym, bar and spa - the club house has an integrating vocation that aspires to dissolve the limits of its prints, inviting each individual to increase their relationships where it seems impossible to do so.

    Wow. That's pretty old school. If I didn't know better I would have thought it was based on a discarded design from William Pereira's office. Seeing it amongst the other stuff on Dezeen reminds me of how far architecture has come.

    Retro for my taste. I guess the handrail bridge is inspired by paper clips.

    It looks paceful and light.

    If I look at the big plan, it seems all the surroundings are going to be filled with small houses?

      'gated community'

  • JuiceMajor

    For a site as beautiful as this, I must say, the architect has done a pretty poor job. Everything just feels heavy and old-fashion, and this not the kinda of good old-fashion!

    Something like the cafe on Serpertine Lake in Hyde Park would be nice!

    I agree, something more opened to the landscape would have been more appropriated. With "open" I do not mean just glazings… I mean OPEN.

    Well, at least they showcased the details. Cheers for that!
