Excerpt: Delfina is a residence designed by the architectural firm TATŪ Arquitectura. The constructive system used for the project’s development is based on traditional construction of foundations and exterior walling that was complemented by a light roof that was executed with steel and galvanized beams. The interior was finished with phenolic eucalyptus boards, and the exterior with a vertical plank also of the same wood.

Project Description

(“Text as submitted by the Architects”)

The project is located in Villa Serrana, in rugged terrain and far from the most qualified areas of urbanization, with precarious infrastructures compared to the rest of the area. This condition of austerity from the available infrastructures gave the landscape a wild feeling or almost unexplored rurality that we wanted to take advantage of and enhance.

It was therefore decided to use a language inspired by the typology of the “barn,” or cabin-refuge, featuring a rectangular layout and sloping roofs that favor amplitude within the interior space while providing an ideal function for measuring runoff and collecting rainwater. To incorporate the housing program, it was decided to opt for a simple floor plan based on a symmetrical organization barely distorted by the interior distributions of the ends. 

The central space, pass through and is fully connected in its longitudinal faces with the outside by two large sliding windows, corresponds to the social space contained in the transversal sense by two programmatic “parentheses” that house different facilities of the kitchen and living room. Behind these are the rooms and the bathroom at the ends of the assemblage.
