Again we are in Facades World with a new entry. On the day of the date, it is up to a remodeling generated in Chile, in Villa Alemana, where we will see a termination of completely modern housing, ideal for a family of 4 people. Let's get started ...
Mainly and as we already mentioned, the assignment consisted of remodeling and expansion of a house that was built in the 60 decade, located on a flat plot of 289 m2 with only 74 m2 built. The owners, a young couple with small children, requested three things as a premise: usable spaces for children and in turn for meetings, in order to keep them controlled and in turn have a space to enjoy visitors, programmatic flexibility, and good lighting.
Beyond the limited budget that was available, the expansion of this brick dwelling He contemplated the construction of the master bedroom with a bathroom in addition to a small laundry room. Then, thanks to the materiality used, it was sought that it did not have to be covered, that is why the architects thought of tax brick reinforced by a Steel frame for the new structural walls. In the same way we acted with the floor, which was directly applied a painting of high traffic.
The main action focused on designing a new relationship between the house and its patio. To achieve this, the house was programmatically ordered to allow the possibility of generating relations of interior-exterior use. Added to this, a wall was created whose solid-void ratio, projected the interior spaces towards the patio, thus leaving its condition and transforming into an area of extension of the interior enclosures.
Thanks to the aforementioned, illuminated enclosures were generated inside the remodeled housing, with a living room that became the driving center for daily use and social activities in the house.
Meanwhile, the part of the patio, which we can only access from inside the building, supports the vocation of the enclosures with which it connects on the outside. Next, we show you a little of his interior design to be able to generate more ideas for their possible remodeling or construction.
