Sommet & Asociados created this modern residence in 2012 for a family located in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The architects have cultivated a dramatic duality between substance and perceived weightlessness of the forms and materials. Material textures are essential components in the project. Stone and wood finishes are elements that beyond giving a reading between volumes, they provide this contemporary home with the sensibility of a traditional architecture environment. The ground floor houses the public and common spaces: living and dining room, kitchen, study, bathrooms and a gallery that makes for an outdoor seating space that connects its sights with a green garden holding a swimming pool that connects the house with the barbecue place. A floating staircase with wooden steps, located on the distribution hall of the ground floor, leads to a small family living room where natural light becomes the benchmark of vitality for the house. An interior garden bathes the wall with nuances of light and shadow providing added warmth to this space that serves as a link between the rooms of children and adults.
