Text description provided by the architects. Studio Gil is an exciting new practice focusing on design and dynamic solutions.

One of our first projects, ‘Flex’, is a 260sqm, 3 storey single family house built in Palmira, Colombia.

Built using local construction techniques and local tradesmen, ‘Flex’ is a modern representation of a very traditional house.

The site is a 6m x 15m plot and lies in an urban location in the town of Palmira, Colombia. It sits in a terraced ‘slot’ effectively land-locked by adjacent buildings on 3 sides.

The second idea is of 2 courtyard lightwell spaces that flood every room in the house with natural light. The lightwells are open to the hot Colombian tropical climate bathing the house in sunlight as well as cooling and ventilating the building.
