“If a straight line is the shortest path between two points, the curve is what makes concrete seek infinity”
Oscar Niemeyer

Grizzo Studio: This project is implemented on a two thousand square meter lot in the La Horqueta neighborhood, San Isidro, in a low-scale residential environment with abundant vegetation. In addition to housing, the project has a work space that will be able to receive the public. The challenge was to make both uses coexist while giving them the necessary independence.
Through curved lines we achieve that the house has multiple facades, taking advantage of the mandatory side retreats.
The showroom is located at the front against the sector closest to the avenue and sinks so as not to detract from the vision or lighting of the rest of the house. Its morphology is generated under a hill, providing a garden in front and opening to a large internal patio, which functions as a barrier between the public and the private. The residential sector of the house is closed in front by a blind concrete block that dematerializes into parasols.
From this compact block at the front, the concrete bar breaks towards the back through a set of curved planes that emerge in two opposite directions. One of them is made up of the service, kitchen and gallery, surrounding the existing tree and receiving the morning sun; The other is occupied by the rest area on the upper floor and a double-height living room at the top, surrounded by the vegetation of the internal patio and achieving deep panoramic views of the entire garden and the surrounding trees.
Below the living room there is a TV room and cellar, taking advantage of the ventilation and natural lighting towards the showroom patio.
The pool is located perpendicular to the front of the lot to have a direct relationship with the gallery, but at the same time, move away from the elevated sector of the house to capture the afternoon sun.
