Tingo and Fenny Residence by Pons Arquitectos:
“The architect’s objective in this Project was to develop two houses for two siblings, on a single 25, 824 sq. ft. lot, with common areas, but with abundant privacy and independence for each house. The project may be seen from different viewpoints thanks to the privilege position of the lot, which further offers excellent views that are advantageously used to frame the interior spaces of both houses. The extensive area layout develops within a pure array of volumes assembled into 2 large blocks.
Three floors are housed in these volumes; however, only two are noticeable from the outside in order to maintain the residential scale. The floor plan is similar in both houses. The underground level includes garages, guest rooms and one study room.
Common areas to both homes include gym, swimming pool and a large hall for social gatherings. Second floor is reserved for bedrooms. Marble, granite, brick and stone give color and texture to the volumes.”
