2009 | Apartment 1104 (remodeling)

El Sagrado Corazón is a neighborhood some blocks away from Bogota´s downtown, where the US Embassy settled in the seventies. Several fifteen-storey buildings were built, some of them with apartments intended for temporary visitors. In the eleventh floor of one of these is a 60m2 single room apartment, not entirely suitable for the client: it lacked a laundry area, bathroom was insufficient and bedroom was poorly illuminated. What was done: replacement of the finishes that darkened the place, adaptation of a small laundry area, installation of a continuous upper window in the bathroom in order to give it some natural light, and the new bedroom division with a blackout roll instead of the previous wall. // 60m2 | 2009. Location: Sagrado Corazón neighborhood, Bogota. Client: Private.

El Sagrado Corazón es un barrio cerca al centro de Bogota, en donde se ubicaba la embajada de Estados Unidos en los años setenta. Varios edifi cios se construyeron en esta época pensando en residentes temporales en apartaestudios. En un piso 11, un apartamento de 1 alcoba necesitaba las siguientes adecuaciones para el cliente: mayor versatilidad, mejor iluminación para la alcoba principal y baño, y una zona de lavandería. Se reemplazaron los acabados que oscurecían el lugar, se adaptó una pequeña zona de ropas, se puso una ventana corrida superior en el baño, y se abrió la alcoba, ahora dividida con un blackout. // 60m2. 2009. Proyecto individual. Construcción: Maestro Giovanny Sanchez. Cliente: Privado. Lugar: Barrio Sagrado Corazón, Bogotá.
