Imagine you are in the center of one of the most beautiful colonial centers in Latin America, you see one of the few buildings from the 70s that are in the area, to which time has made its own. When you enter, you could be in an old building in NY or Moscow, you go up the stairs and you still don't know what you are doing there, you go down a small corridor and you come across a pure metal door, now you think you are going to a recording studio or an airplane workshop.

The space
The door slides open to reveal a unique space. Designed by an artist, a minimalist intervention that combines the sensory of the materials and the vegetation in a wide 120m2 space, where beams that cross the place, like fallen trunks in a forest, work as furniture. The space is embraced by an extraordinary view of the historic center, which allows you sufficient proximity to the urban dynamics of the area and the enjoyment of a romantic landscape of facades and of the Panecillo, the city's iconic hill.
Nothing is common in this space, it invites you to new ways of living without neglecting all the services and equipment for a comfortable stay. Just start enjoying your experience.

The project has been published by numerous architecture and design magazines around the world, if you are interested in knowing more about the project you can find it as A Forest by Aquiles Jarrín.

I´m a german-argentinian architect and love old buildings better than new ones. Together with my partner we enjoy optimizing and improving spaces, and making ideas happen. We love art and cultural exchange. We like hosting and sharing our favourite spots and trips in the city that we lived in for the last years (2013-2020) and around. I´ve been happily hosting since 2016 and am now as well experiencing the joyfull side of being a guest and traveller. I´m very respectful of differences and of other peoples space. I´ll be happy to meet!
