Salto del Penitente in Lavalleja, Uruguay by gualano+gualano arquitectos

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Article source: gualano+gualano arquitectos

The project does not try to impose or merge, and marks an abstract, honest, architectural form of finished materiality with the concrete made rock. It takes part in the landscape, respecting it, trying to be of importance to the site. The project is solved in two pieces that articulate in the landscape; the inn  that hangs of the rock and emerges towards the cliff and the other volume, with the public restrooms and picnic area, receiving to the arrivals of automobiles. The skin concrete structure generates the limits and hard edges of the work, generating the structure composition of the project.

THE ENERGY OF CERRO MISTICO (MYSTIC HILL) in Lavalleja, Uruguay by FDS Arquitectos

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: FDS Arquitectos

A good friend calls us to design a small hotel, 4 or 6 rooms on the hills of Lavalleja, Uruguay. The area is very well known for its spiritual tourism, as it is a very energetic place.

Visit to the area

there is definitely something very special about the energy of the hill:  it is quite inaccessible, it is covered by low native  vegetation. There are formations belonging to the earliest inhabitants of the place and archeological remains difficult to date. The views from up there are breathtaking.  Our friend and his family are in love with the place, we feel incredibly motivated and challenged by the task.
