La Boyita by Martin Gomez Arquitectos
The La Boyita residence is a beautiful modern home located on a unique plot in the city of Punta del Este, Uruguay. Its location provides it with the unique opportunity of enjoying endless views of its beautiful surroundings and Martin Gomez Arquitectos have made sure to make the most out of it. Unlike their La Magnolia House project in Argentina whose design focused more on privacy, the La Boyita residence is all about those views. Naturally, the design features the use of glazed surfaces that not only open the interior up to the stunning views outside but also shower it in natural light.
With a unique plot, due to its size, location and views, the owner could only dream for a relaxed and peaceful summer house. in order to satisfy his demand we decided enhance its views while protecting its outdoor areas.
The project consists of five blocks which contains a main block with a living and dining area with the best views to the sea and its swimming pool, which is completely protected from the wind placed in the center of the project. the other blocks contain a service area and other guest room blocks. this independence was crucial to make his guests get the feeling of being in alone in a hotel.
The gallerias that surround these concrete blocks end up creating the idea is outdoor living rooms and creating a fluid transition between the interior and the exterior with a fantastic panoramic view. The materials used are concrete, wood, iron and glass.
