Description by Martin Dulanto Arquitecto
This project creates a narrative in which different blocks and the vacuum generated between them are the protagonists. The volume was proposed as a large white box that has been excavated, and within which appear different “buckets” with various materials (wood, exposed concrete, etc.). These “cubes” appear along the entire project at different scales: From the main cube, the container of the entire project, to medium sized cubes such as the wood kitchen, and the exposed concrete master bedroom, scaling down to smaller cubes such as some pieces of furniture.
The social area of the first level was designed with a dual purpose: To guide the social area to the park in front of the house, but also to the boardwalk and the beach; and to break the continuity of the orthogonal walls of nearby houses, generating a particular perspective from the road to the park.
