Casa Pentimento by Jose Maria Saez and David Barragan


In the Casa Pentimento, the architects have developed a prefabricated concrete system that acts as wall, screen, support for landscaping and even holds up the furniture. Google translation from the architect’s website: “The interstices between prefabricated wall in turn filter vegetation and light, the cracks are left open at some points and close in others with transparent or translucent acrylic and strips of wood. These same cracks inside are supporting pieces of wood that become bookshelves, chairs, tables and step.”

“The house ignores possible finishes. The foundation slab melts with black pigment and firmig to become the finished floor final. The precast concrete are both viewed abroad as inside, softening its hard wood red, and green-Flashing oxidized copper and vegetation always present.”
