Here is a colorful and tasteful home design that will cheer you up. Casa Sasso comes from 57Studio and is a 1 658 SqFt residence located in Santiago, Chile. The project consisted in redefining a 1960s home and transforming it into a hairdresser shop and living space. The two functionally different units were separated by an inspired use of color. This way the residence looks like a giant red & white cube and faces the back garden, while the hairdresser shop is brown and has a parallelepiped shape, connected to the street. According to the architects, “the volumes are covered with fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) panels, in modules that optimize their industrial format. The hairdresser shop’s access is defined within that modulation and its interior space is illuminated through a skylight. Glass was also utilized in the house, incorporated as a new enveloping material. The second level corner windows were designed according to the requirements of each interior space. In the bathroom, an elevated window controls the view from the exterior. The children’s room has a mid height window, and in the main dormitory a large fixed full height window is incorporated, offering a direct view to Santiago’s Manquehue hill. The intention was to bring out the glass, without frameworks or openings, therefore the ventilation is provided through a hatchway, lost to the exterior through a FRC module“.
