Pekin Home / TIM ARQUITECTOS
“As a designer for TIM Architects, I all the time attempt to preserve the design pointers that characterize our studio, such because the absence of ornaments and moldings, the accesses as protagonists, the glazed areas, the purity of the facades and the sensible division of the inner areas in accordance with their use as, for instance, the separation between the kitchen and the social area -says the architect Felipe Aracama, answerable for the Casa Pekin project-.
“In 2017, throughout a visit I made with UBA (College of Buenos Aires) to Chile -continues explaining the architect Felipe Aracama, designer of this house- I received to know Ocho al Cubo, a proposal wherein, in a closed neighborhood, a number of architects had been capable of construct homes with out a shopper, Like an structure lab. Casa Pekin is established in Lares, a neighborhood that we’re growing with the identical essence, and the home is a elementary a part of that course of. It has a rationalist imprint, minimalism prevails in it from its structure to its furnishings, and the design is on the forefront of the basic trendy motion. The home was designed for a younger household with its 150 m2, divided into three rooms, two bedrooms, the kitchen separated from the living-dining room, and the leitmotiv of the work: the social area. This area is the protagonist. It’s surrounded by glass, with its uncovered concrete ceiling and the furnishings that attire it in a dim and sober method.
The home is pure structure. Its rationalist traits derive from the trendy motion created 100 years in the past that accentuates the purity of the shape, the geometry of its parts, and the usage of supplies akin to concrete, wooden, and glass. If we check out the home from the entrance, we are able to analyze that now we have two plans: a blind one and a glazed one. An essential matter: the eaves. The proposed intention is that the home seems floating above the bottom and that the slab on the bottom flooring is flying. The home appears gentle always, a sensation strengthened by particulars such because the absence of helps within the gallery. The eaves fly gentle and free and forged a extremely valued shadow over the social area. The separation between the kitchen and the social area is a private venture choice, taken within the need to not combine two disparate capabilities, and to offer every area with all the mandatory consolation so that every one presents the most effective of itself, with out interfering with one another.”
