G2 Estudio | G House
Taking control of the entry of the natural light was the starting point of the design.to the interiors of the building not only from vertical openings but also of inner balconies and skylights. It is for this reason that the public space and circulations of the house is organized around a large skylight, and then the spatial form of continuous pieces is unleashing outdoors.
As a result, not only generates controlled natural light but also the sensation of comfort and peace, that is why we took this idea and we did continues in the design of the houses of g2. The uses are organized around this great skylight and main space, resulting in a dynamic scale, functional and harmonious, spacious and bright environments organized in well-defined groups and independent. On the ground floor kitchen-dining room area and services with the expansions to the pergola space of the outdoor grill and swimming pool form these groups.
With tension, materializing the slit in double height and bridge connector that give access to the main character and puts in crisis the general morphology of the house. Living room, and main skylight balconies area make up the public; on the upper floor bedrooms are grouped together for the children to one side, study and master room by another ending of grouping the private uses. Partitions out of lead, pendants, and cantilevers beams sidelines system are put at limit and searches for the entire expression of the structure of armed concrete, the main material element in the aesthetics with the colouring of the house. From the inside are prioritized the visual to the intimate garden in the public uses, and the search for frames in relation to the alamos trees that surround the house in the private uses.
The project is composed by three morphologicly elements:
BASE – SURROUND – FINISHING:
The base is materialized by continuous load-bearing partitions and pace of columns on the ground floor, is what gives sustainable compositional and adjusts shape to the development of the concrete, you are looking for a way express soft and flexible, arriving continuously finishing in the main lightsky. Composition morphologic strategies such as rotation, translation broken, penetration, displacement, end of delineating the footprint of the house and their full – empty.
G2 Estudio is an Argentinean architecture studio, founded in 2002 by Dario Gallego and Hugo Gallego (brothers in law, and partners in the venture). The studio is specialized on an experimental proposal and new searches of architectural design. For the growing up of the studio, the directors decided in 2008 to associate with Ariel Capalbo, also forming a professional architects and designers team. G2 Estudio projects includes: urban development, national and international houses, hospitality buildings, remodeling, contests, exclusive and unique equipment designs, etc.
