The main idea was to conceive a project of a house that would be constructed in a few months, with a remote team of workers. Therefore systematize construction, easy mounting, solve simple details, was part of how to approach to this project.
Hence it was decided to use the vibrated concrete block as the "only" material, incorporating different sizes and formats.
The vibrated concrete blocks used in two ways, the simple and the draft blocks.
An easy, concrete, affordable housing.
The piece defines a boundary , a block boundary , solid and drafts blocks , incorporating in its perimeter to outer space - barbacue deck .
The house try to capture the landscape inside the borders.
In this way the housing is formed as a single, abstract piece, which contains the program into its "inner ". Externally the house connects without colonizing . Only a small wall defines vehicular and pedestrian entrance, taking advantage of the tall eucalyptus shades. In summary, a white piece that fits between the thin tree trunks. Becoming place.
The site is La Pedrera, a small seaside resort on the Atlantic coast, 220 km from Montevideo, in the department of Rocha, Uruguay.
The area is a flat terrain of 12x36 mts, in the middle of a young eucalyptus forest, just a few blocks far from the sea.
Two bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen, an interior space (dining room - room), an outer space (deck - grill).
A sequence of programmatic bands.
Simple spaces are defined programmatic and geometrically.
