Today’s newsletter features a new project in Bolivia designed by Sommet Arquitectura y Construcción. Located in the suburbs of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Casa Pomarino occupies on a corner plot of a gated community. As opposed to a most common arrangement, this extrovert “L” shaped house exposes its exterior areas, which includes the swimming pool. Thanks to the natural slope of the plot the construction sits on the top of the hill. This position enhances the open views on the ground floor, while allows the existence of a basement with the garage and service areas. Concrete walls and floor to ceiling glass windows define the language of the project.

Today’s newsletter features TB House.

The 150 square meter main corp, with the living room and kitchen, was built in only 15 days, with the idea of minimizing the impact on the local forest.
