the dwelling is terraced into the landscape revealing a low-lying white structure, while the opposing elevation is mediated with a series of stone walls with the sloped terrain. within a grove of slender eucalyptus trees, a glass cube above the kitchen serves as a beacon, immediately showing recently arrived inhabitants the warm and active state of the heart of the home. the wooden dining table and chairs were made custom made locally. cement stucco surfaces internal partitions, ceilings and floors with accents of wood carpet.

  • A beautiful plan but poorly elevated. When terms such as ‘Ventilation Portal’ are used you know you’re in trouble.

  • Beautiful.

  • Quite boring and dated. It is an overdose of modernism. Looks like a hospital. The concrete roof makes nothing to the human soul. Hard to enjoy the beautiful Uruguayan landscape with that pile of concrete on your head.
