fabrizio pugliese tops metallic grid house with handcrafted ceramic roof in buenos aires

Fabrizio pugliese’s ‘monopoli house’ is located in a peri-urban area with landscape-like features in Buenos Aires and combines a handcrafted and an industrialized system of articulation to emerge in the midst of the grasslands. The project is taking shape as a modular system made up of curved ceramic roofs and metal pillars, while wood paneling and elements are installed throughout to add warmth to the overall design.

The fabrizio pugliese monopoly house has a handcrafted roof with a reinforced ceramic structure system. The loads are redirected to the support points and are emphasized by reducing the columns from 10 cm to 5 cm. Meanwhile, the industrialized metal system is defined by a structural grid that allows the program to be organized on the basis of partitions that configure the spaces within the modulation.

The program is divided into two areas, public and private, separated by a flat roof and terrace through which sunlight comes in from the north. Indirect light can enter through the gap that connects the two systems. This operation defines the atmosphere of the house given the reflections in the bricks that give the house a reddish color.
