Vintage Glamour in Buenos Aires

The elegant simplicity of the carrara marble façade resembles the kind of modernist House that you’d see in California or in Brazil. But it’s at the end of a serene and wooded cul-de-sac, within the limits of Buenos Aires, the three-storey property is. Celina Saubidet, a sculptor and jewelry designer, and Urko Suaya, renowned photographer, were together there was six years ago when they decided to get out of the houses-studios where they lived in the neighborhood of Palermo. Been waiting for the first child and wanted to “give you a warm welcome in a peaceful environment.”
After a thorough search, were lucky enough to come across a real find: a family home of the Decade of 1960, with peculiar character. The formal innovations of architecture of that time are here: conceptual simplicity, purity of volumes, an emphasis on horizontal lines and abroad brought in through large glazed openings. However, what makes the place notable is that all these elements are mentioned with some poetic license. A relaxed notion seems to have guided who built the address. Starting with the floors, all made with different varieties of marble, from the garage, through stairs and bedrooms, even the external terraces – an animated version and smart, well out of the ordinary, of modernism. Not to mention the walls, with gilded bronze panels of the glamorous dining room or the extensive and Rosewood of mural being worked.
Celina and Urko were animadíssimos with the discovery. Seemed to be big enough to accommodate the new family setting, beyond the scope of work of each one and also I like you both have to receive. “Memorable Parties happen here” are the hosts, who are friends of architects, artists and surfers.
