When we took the project, it was an apartment without terminations or internal divisions; we decided to preserve the “big gap” that constituted the place in the situation that was handed to us. We concentrate in promoting the sensation of being in such a big space to almost 200 meters high, where we wanted to have the possibility of walking close to the glass to see the changing views of the city. The minimal divisions were done, looking for the biggest possible largeness, and working with scales that allow one to live rested.
It was necessary to accumulate as many functions and possible accessories, so the rest of the atmosphere can stay free. Several sets of objects were ordered to be one only, such as the series of walls, doors and wardrobes furniture that materialize as a simple plane Canadian spruce wood with matte black gloss. This concept is repeated all over the floor, generating large pieces always continuous that go serving the surrounding activities in different ways.
The quality terminations, surfaces and meetings was an obsession of the work, materials were used mostly natural finishes and placed with a high degree of refinement. For example, for the floors, were selected whole batches of marble that were then sectioned in very large plates of approx. 2 m2, so we could be able to place the plates by following the veins of the same stone, so the connections are not perceived and give a feeling of being again a large rock. This work is amazing on the floor of the main space of marble Marquina measuring 21 x 8metros and on the curve which is sculpted to avoid the faceted.
A mostly monochrome palette unifies and puts in the same tune the house as a whole, not allowing the elements to stand out individually and generating a uniform and pleasant climate.
The equipment and furniture of Italian manufacturing was carefully selected from the beginning of the project and before executing the work. They are pieces of highly functional and constructive complexity but of great formal simplicity, that transmit lightness and delicacy, with soft and ephemeral occupation intended for the space.
Great works of art are functionally incorporated into space as the plates-acrylic sculptures of the Argentine Rogelio Polesello that delimit the entrance to the floor space and generate a contention for the main living area.
The main space of 150m 2 contains the living room, the dining room, a second living room with Home Theatre and a bar, all in one environment that is divided into sectors with furniture, lighting and walls.
The whole house is connected to a central system of home automation which controls the operation of devices: draperies and its filters, lights, music, heating temperature, security, led screens, the openings of doors, etc.
The suite has a spacious bath and relax fully coated with granite Blue Bay and different types of crystals. Both jacuzzi and shower space were intended to generate enjoyable moments with complete views of the city from the heights.
