La Ciudad de Fútbol
Retail and Housing
La Ciudad de Fútbol is a social condenser: a machine for community building, commerce, living and playing; a precise, yet low-tech kit-of-parts assemblage, with layered and varied speeds of circulation and degrees of privacy in a constant flux of depth.
Amply daylit, spaces and their boundaries are take on an ethereal ambiance drawn from a flowing cerulean mural and rhyming finish palette. The ribboning blue graphics along the corridor are punctuated with translucent panels to create visual communication between zones, subtly establishing simple wayfinding for guests.
Pool House is a reductive adaptation of an existing garage. It is a transitional space within a rejuvenated, terraced enfilade connecting the once dark, eastern-most interior of the house to the new brick-paved garden and pool at the western-most end of the lot.
