Equipo De Arquitectura

In this episode George is joined by the architect and builder Horacio Cherniavsky, one of the founders of the Paraguayan studio

. They talk about La Casa Intermedia, a single storey, one bedroom home in the city of Asunción.

The home as been built on a narrow plot and is characterised by distinct vaulted brick roofs that cover a sequence of spaces. The spaces span the full width of the property and are interspersed with internal courtyards, meaning every room has a double aspect.

What George loves about the house is it is very private from the street, but inside reveals an oasis like space that has been carefully put together using local craftsmen and a building process the studio has described as ‘pretty slow and delicate’

At the end of the episode, George asks Tom the three questions he asks all his podcast guests;
– what really annoys him about his home?
– what house has he visited that has really inspired him?
– and, if he could choose anyone to design him a new house, who would he choose?

We hope you enjoy listening!
