House of Tubes, reconstruction
Best Implemented Restoration / Reconstruction Project
About the project
The project is the fusion of two buildings, an abandoned one from the 70's with the building from the current era and the element that was designed to unite them is the pool. It is a project that has two main uses, the 1st as a residence for a family of 5 members, the 2nd as an art museum, with wide areas and high walls to receive more than 300 people. The design copies the back mountain shape, the city's iconic mountain. Only 3 finishes with light tones are used in the project to make the spaces shine through the natural light that is projected on the walls, floors and ceilings.
