MIRADOR HOUSE

FamilyHouses as Architects

Open to the river and sheltered towards the front, protecting its intimacy, it poses a path with different spatial perceptions. Setting off from the entrance stone portico, it continues with a bridge-like deck that crosses the patio and leads us onto the double height hall inside the house. A see-through wall with vertical gashes shows the fully glazed sitting room, which permits a visual continuum of the garden and the endlessly edged swimming pool that seems to merge with the river. The “lapacho” wooden pergola serves as a gallery and shelters a more intimate lower- level space. There is access from the top floor to this pergola –deck, the bannisters of which have been designed in a nautical language, using stainless steel cables and fittings. The guests suite and the main bedroom suite are both placed on the second floor, the latter has been designed as an integrated bedroom and spa lounge. It includes a dressing room, a double-space bathroom with sauna, jacuzzi and Scottish shower and a glazed balcony with the gymnastics area. Its design makes you think of the observatories of the marinas.
