Text description provided by the architects. This design is a point of sales for a residential complex in San Bernardo County, part of a master plan deployed around a big artificial lagoon.


The intention was to convey a sensation of rest, recreation and relaxation, providing clear views from the terrace in order to contemplate the lagoon in its entire dimension. The building had to be seeable from the distance yet not be a disruptive element in the landscape. In order to do so, a higher volume was built to serve as reference point from the distance –in daylight and nighttime- and to capture natural light.

The coating is mainly wooden, creating a friendly and not-too-commercial look, and inviting general public to a close experience. Transparent views are open to the lagoon, the main visual attraction in the scene, and facades that do not have direct view to the lagoon are opaque. However, the window on the roof allows light to provide contentment and natural luminosity to the interior.

There are basic areas to support sales, where sellers transmit to clients the warmth and tranquility of the project, always with clear views to the lagoon and its surroundings. The cover has blank spaces that merge landscape and architecture, and are intended to be a prolongation of the landscaping project developed around the lagoon.

There is a back office space in all its length, as well as restrooms for sellers and clients, where gardens are also part of the view, incorporating landscape in every place of the project. Finally, children’s play areas are defined, along with pedestrian tracks and a parking lot.
