Castro House emerges as the conception of a project that unites brutalism with modern New York architecture.
The project consists of two distinct levels that separate the social area which is open to an internal garden with a swimming pool, and the private area where the bedrooms and the main entrance are located, which preserve the customer’s privacy through a monolithic facade in exposed concrete.
The choice of bricks, concrete and metallic structure reinforces the client’s desire for his residence to be a large “man cave” in connection with brutalism concept that maintains Castro House with an austere aspect, which receives a counterpoint of color from the vegetation and the copper panel.
