The SAN FRANCISCO housing building is implanted in the Jara neighborhood in Asuncion. It is a traditional neighborhood of houses with courtyards, hills and ceramics; lush trees, shades and views.Save this picture!© Lauro RochaOur architectural decisions try to understand and appreciate the premises of the place (context, sub tropical climate, etc.), solving the problem of excess light and heat with a ceramic filter to the west (main facade) and understanding that cross ventilation in the building is essential.Save this picture!SectionLimited resources or still expensive technology make our design solutions essential, economic and relevant. The floors are airy with large balconies, spatially connected to the outside …Save this picture!© Lauro RochaThe common terrace to enjoy the sky, the Chaco horizon, or the excellent view of the city… Contains the fire tank / pool as a guarantee for any emergency in the community or neighborhood. It is available for all. It also reuses rain water which is collected and used in bathrooms and gardens…Save this picture!PlanSerenity, austerity, raw materials, economy, and above all, to achieve the space that was longed for, protected and pertinent shelter, make this building an opportunity to conclude the spaces, without losing the memory of our roots, or the respect of our particular climate.Save this picture!© Lauro RochaLocal labor, nobles and economic materials, shadow or penumbra, the city and time are issues that are embodied in the project. The longing of the building is evident: that light be controlled, filtered or rather for shadow.Save this picture!© Lauro RochaProject gallerySee allShow lessMagaldi and Unamuno Squares / Galpón EstudioSelected ProjectsCasa do Povo da Maia Nursery / M-ArquitectosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Asuncion, ParaguayLocation to be used only as a reference.
