Casa Claros is located on a slope along the riverside overlooking the city. This 1600 sqm single family  house inserts itself into the terrain and takes advantage of the slope in order to portray a smaller house on the street side. Even though we are talking about a 4-story home, the façade shows a 2-story building composed of simple lines and materials.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe four levels that dictate the project organize the program according to access and views. The top level takes advantage of the views to the city, the river and to the golf course that lies adjacent to it. Although it normally works as a family room and an office, its open plan organization allows flexibility in terms of use and makes it possible to host big social gatherings.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Leonardo FinottiSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Leonardo FinottiOn the street level are all 5 bedrooms, a library and a TV room. The easy access to and from the street level make it comfortable to navigate into the floor while maintaining the connection to the amenities on the level below. Right under the bedrooms is the social area of the house: the living room, swimming pool, galleries, kitchen and chapel. Even though there is a secondary access from the street side into the public domain of the project, a continuous staircase connects all 4 levels, making it easy to access from every level of the project. The gym, sauna and music room work as an extension of the social area of the house and lie on the lower level. This level is inserted into the hill, which helps maintain the privacy.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: 2018 North American Copper in Architecture AwardsBuilt Projects & MasterplansAllies and Morrison Wins Competition to Restore and Renovate Clandon Park Mansion in…Architecture News Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeSommetOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta Cruz de la SierraBoliviaPublished on December 06, 2017Cite: “Casa Claros / Sommet” 06 Dec 2017.
