Flex in Palmira, Colombia by Studio Gil
Studio Gil is an exciting new practice focusing on design and dynamic solutions. One of our first projects, ‘Flex’, is a 260sqm, 3 storey single family house built in Palmira, Colombia. Built using local construction techniques and local tradesmen, ‘Flex’ is a modern representation of a very traditional house. The site is a 6m x 15m plot and lies in an urban location in the town of Palmira, Colombia. It sits in a terraced ‘slot’ effectively land-locked by adjacent buildings on 3 sides. ‘Flex’ consists of 2 main architectural ideas: the first is of 2 walls that ‘flex’ to contain storage for the house – the external concrete façade wall, and an internal frame element.
