In this episode I am joined by the architect and builder Horacio Cherniavsky, one of the founders of the Paraguayan studio Equipo De Arquitectura. We talk about La Casa Intermedia, a single storey, one bedroom home in the city of Asunción.
The home as been built on a narrow plot and is characterised by distinct vaulted brick roofs that cover a sequence of spaces. The spaces span the full width of the property and are interspersed with internal courtyards, meaning every room has a double aspect.
What I love about the house is it is very private from the street, but inside reveals an oasis like space that has been carefully put together using local craftsmen and a building process the studio has described as ‘pretty slow and delicate’
At the end of the episode, I ask Tom the three questions I ask all my podcast guests;
– what really annoys him about his home?
– what house has he visited that has really inspired him?
– and, if he could choose anyone to design him a new house, who would he choose?
I hope you enjoy listening!
