* Residential Architecture: Recycled Materials Cottage by Juan Luis Martínez Nahuel

Residential Architecture: Recycled Materials Cottage by Juan Luis Martínez Nahuel: “..The difficulty of access determined the restraint of defining the project in multiple modular parts of the capacity of a small truck. The wish and ability of the client to search and purchase demolition materials set a series of elements to incorporate in the new home..

These elements were reinterpreted in a new order:

– Glazed doors of a house of the 60´s by Horacio Borgheresi that originally belonged to a patio, became the main facade of the new housing.

– Eucalyptus and native rauli parquet floors of a house of the 70´s by Larraín, Swinburn and Covarrubias, which became the main coating.

– Commercial laminated beams and steel pieces used for a temporary exhibition are now part of the main structural elements..”  Sustainability, repurposed materials, privacy, nature, views..
