- CASA DEL RÍO
N 25° 31' 09. 16"
The Casa del Rio was designed and built as a projection of the clients design acumen, modern taste and love of art. The building tradition and zoning in Mexico is such that no setback is required from the property line which allowed for a fortified structure; as security is a requirement for the client, the strength and presence of the board-formed concrete exterior is as much a necessity as it is part of the Mexican lexicon of building and creates a house that engulfs the lot and gives way to an internal hierarchy of a central courtyard and then a terraced topography that steps down and out several times to the pool house at the final estuary level. By contrast, the interior is nuanced and cultured and designed to exhibit the clients’ art collection and sense of space and materiality. THIRLWALL laid out the interior of the residence as a reflection of the clients’ lifestyle and personality and their presence is very much built into the experience of the design from the public to the private sectors of the home. THIRLWALL’s consistent concept of a rugged exterior of glass and concrete coupled with a luxurious and lavish interior rings true in this project more than any other. Concrete is contrasted with the finest furnishings globally available from Poltrona Frau, BDDW, Ceccotti, Flexform, Tacchini, Glas Italia, and Acerbis with custom integrated paneling in teak wood by Laura Meroni and stone Vaselli travertine panels rendered in 3D from designer photos of the adjacent estuary. The master closet covering over 1500sq’ is Molteni with Porro and antique accents and plumbing throughout is Dornbract, Falper and Antonio Lupi. The house has a 60’ long living room/dining room with an adjacent double height art gallery that is a full 30’ tall with a glass curtain wall system facing the water, custom 12’ tall sliding glass doors allow one to open all outward and inner courtyard facing facades to permit passive cooling of the home in the winter. The home’s structure is based on the premise that all parallel shear walls are cast concrete and all opposing bracing is made up of chrome columns, a rationale that gives the home a unique character. The home under air is 22,000sq'/2000m2.

The design concept was to create a set of parallel and perpendicular planes intersecting each other at different heights to create both interior and exterior spaces. As a result, with the extension of some of these planes, a sense of lightness is created in the entirety of the project. The most present architectural material is cast in place concrete yet the design concept used extensive cantilevers and skylights to minimize the heaviness and bring a floating sense of gravity to the home. Full height windows along with walls that do not directly connect but are bridged by glass to the other around different courtyards and various moments around the residence, as well as opening up key views to the surroundings. One courtyard has an imported Asian solid Jade boulder surrounded by a fluctuating rainwater catchment pool that acts as a bellwether for the South Florida seasons of winter drought and summer monsoons. 15,000 SFN 2 5 ° 7 9 ’ 0 9 . 6 ”

The particular condition of this 37,826 sqft corner lot, with both it’s side and rear facing the water (this last one in a curved shape), was the trigger for the design concept of the project. An L shaped volume at the water corner, curved at Biscayne Bay’ side to open up the the view cone towards Miami beach, and to resemble the soft curves of a sail molded by the wind, is broken up by a main axis that connects both visually and physically the entrance and the water. Other vertical walls parallel to this axis and perpendicular to the curved main volume, break this one at different locations to delimit the spaces and to break the horizontality. The proposed materiality is a blend of white travertine, for the vertical elements, white stucco, ceramic louvers where a privacy veal is needed, stainless steel, grey volcanic stone for exterior hardscapes, glass, water and landscaping. The program is composed of a 4 car garage, a double height entrance, a chef’s kitchen, a back kitchen, service quarters, family room, formal dining room, living room, bar/music room, powder bathroom, a guest loft with private entrance, exterior lounge area, exterior dining area and summer kitchen, exterior pools and tennis court on the first floor.

Private residence, located in Key Biscayne, 51 island dr. The project consists of a composition of multiple volumes, which are displayed surrounding an elevated courtyard. Since the house has no views, its focus is on its core oasis, created in its center, where all volumes are looking into.
The house has a 4-car garage, a formal living and dining area, connected to a kitchen and family room, a guest house, and an office on the first floor and 3 bedrooms, a family room, and a master bedroom on the second floor. These volumes materialize in earthy tones and textures, evoking the comfort of the private life. The whole project is based in three materials: grey concrete, wood, and glass.

The project site, located by a cliff at the south-west of the australia coast, is a breathtaking enclave with an extraordinary landscape. In this sense, the site was calling for a very respectul and topographic project in which we intervened with different operations more assignable to nature than to architecture, such as layering in the same way earth builds up through the years, or cracks that so regularly happen in any landscape, or extensions of land protruding out and carefully thought of as well as integrated landsmarks, like any landscape may have. Through these operations, we were able to develop a project that is revealed from the land as you approach it with slight hints of architecture elements happening which evolves, as you move deeper into it, in a rear facade towards the bay completely architectural. 39,000 SFS 27° 0’0”

The concept design for the project evolves from the idea of the water molding and shaping the urban space. Just like the natural world is molded by water and wind, architecture should respond in the same way to connect with its surroundings. The architectural concept parts from a central courtyard, as the void in architecture which belongs both to the natural world and the un-natural, exterior, and interior, nature and architecture, around which the building develops. As the first approach of connection with its surrounds, and taking advantage of what may seem code limitations, the building is lifted from the ground to get a relation from the entrance, through the courtyard to the water. This connection is not only visual, but also physical. It is important to feel this relation as you experience the building. Erosion does not translate in the same shape or texture in nature, regardless of the material it is shaping. The use of a main natural material throughout (white travertine), with different shapes and textures, reflects this concept. Texture expresses something about the quality of the material, and it gives a particular quality to light. Sometimes, the erosion is such that it breaks the skin leaving a physical connection between interior and the exterior, this is reflected in the form of louvers, which are used to connect to the exterior, but at the same time give privacy to the spaces behind. 10,500 SFN 2 5 ° 7 9 ’ 0 9 . 6 ”
- ONE STAR ISLAND
Private residence located on one of the most coveted addresses in the country. This vast property has four levels of expansive spaces from an understory spa complex to a roof deck with a helipad. The concept of this project originated from a location based generative geometry. The forms took shape as they occupied the lot, and the result is a design that optimizes the views of downtown Miami and creates privacy from the adjacencies. The materiality of this project presents a play on the classical application of textures by inverting the general roles of rustic materials closer to the ground, and more polished and refined materials as the height grows. This concept is a reflection on modern day usage of residential architecture, in which the ground floor is used for more social and formal purposes, and therefore benefits from more refined and polished elements and the floors above contain the dormitory functions which benefit from warmer and more textured materials. 25,400 SFN 25° 31' 09. 16"

Combination and renovation to a New York city duplex with full new finishes, lighting, new stairway, bathrooms and kitchen. Interior design services and procurement services were provided as well
The main principle on this design concept was contrast, maintaining a muted color scheme, to create an emphasis on the definition of the spaces through textured surface materials. These materials define three distinctive and independent modules delineating the areas of the living room, dining room and library. These independent modules link at a point where two of them visually aligns to its surfaces. To extend the feeling of continuity, the baseboards match the wood floor finish and lift up in a curve endind behing the Kashmir Suede leather panels and natural stone slabs. Behing the panels, an LED light strip washes down the baseboard and accents the light and continuous visual as if the floor disapears on the walls. Keeping a sophisticated materiality on the interior architecture finishes, accents the central character on this design concept: Art.
