a 12,000 square-meter plot in the flat landscape of boyaca is home to a humble artist’s studio, designed by colombian architect manuel villa. apart from the ideal space in which to explore and produce artistic works, the structure also needed the necessary amenities and a connection to the exterior for renewing breaks. the modest bunker-like structure sits peacefully amongst its context, contrasting the vibrant green field with the earthen yellow of its surfaces. made from a repetitive concrete frame structure with masonry infilled walls and a plaster coating, the solidity of the structure isbroken by several sets of large windows, including a clerestory that ensures complete natural illumination all day long. a loft level provides a social livingspace while the interior remains as one open volume, with the restroom and services tucked discretely under the second level.
