Núñez

Residential Núñez engages its citizens on the northern edge of Buenos Aires.

A quiet enclave in northern Buenos Aires, Núñez reinvented itself into a kindly and serene city suburb. Although it's beloved for its simple lifestyle and commuter-friendly city proximity, Núñez's most famous feature is derived from its history. Former president Néstor Kirchner transformed this neighborhood's once-secret military jail into an exhibition space that champions human rights and fosters cultural engagement, allowing Núñez to reflect on the past while embracing the present.
