ARCH i TEXTURE portfolio

Texture is a piece that I seek to incorporate my design since it has the ability to give life to the buildings by creating a unique experience for the occupant’s senses. Texture expresses the true quality of materials giving the interior spaces different atmospheres.

Artist Centre

The concept consisted on dividing the six meter narrow facade of the building in three parts. The library has different reading spaces in the ends of the corridors and stores all the couple’s books. The bedroom is suspended in the middle of the library, to create the sense of being surrounded by books at all times.

Hotel Design The

concept consisted on a series of bands linked perpendicular by a central corridor. Each of the bands created unique spaces for the different program because of the different lighting conditions. The landscape is a continuation of the bands. The materiality proposed was a combination of black and grey slate with glass.

Sports Club

The concept was to design a metallic screen between the interior and exterior spaces to create a threshold between the landscape and the building. In addition, the skin is a passive vernacular device to create shadows in the interior spaces, yet allowing people to contemplate the exterior views.

Vivid Tatto Logo Design Vivid Tattoo is located in 33 Main Street, Cambridge. My proposal was to design the logo as a tatto that covers most of the facade


In this panel I wanted to represent that poor people have not lost their faith and hope. They believe in God, and that He will be their support.

ART PROJECT

In Peru, poor people live in multifamilies, where their inhabitants are families. The first generation, after moving to the capital, builds the first floor of a house. As the family grows, the second generation builds a second floor, and so on.


In this panel I wanted to show that these impoverished families have the power to change their future. One of the greatest examples is the families who founded the district of San Martin de Porres. Within three generations, this family had significantly improved their quality of life through receiving higher and higher levels of education.

In this panel I drew a foot with shoe-laces. I wanted to express the idea that we choose our own future, in order to protect ourselves and provide our families with basic needs for everyday life.
