The free zone Dajabón was presented for the subject of Design IX, and consisted of an Industrial Zone destined for the manufacturing of textiles that would also have different areas appointed the employees, and contributing with the town, in which the industry would be placed, it would have an area destined to an ephemeral market that would be used by the salesmen of the town. “Camouflage”, was the concept that ruled the aesthetic morphology of the project. As far as the main plan of the complex, the concept is defined by camouflage in a military sense; we can see how the project pretends the wheels of a military tank in its siteplan. As far as the elevations and perspective of the buildings the concept takes another course so that it appears as a “natural camouflage” and the buildings take organic forms present in the surroundings, such as rocks, trees, etc.

Design X LUA-DR (Latin American University of Arts - Dominican Republic)

This piece was done for the last assignment of design class that the university offers, Design X. The project consisted in doing a university of arts, with all the services that an art faculty could offer. It would be located in the town of Jarabacoa, La Vega ,Dominican Republic. The concept used for this project was Organic Architecture. The architectural beings that emerged for this project have a totally organic esthetic that is in direct relation with its surroundings. It is all about taking design to the point where the building’s limits merge with the environment and all looks within the same lot, with the same edges.

The design concept parts from a simple visit to the place in which the project would be developed, inspiring a series of forms and generating a number of ideas in our head that were canalized thru the pencil into a series of sketches. We were inspired basically in photographs taken in the place that helped us live and relate a little of the essence of the same. From them we took forms, colors and materials that where then adapted to the design itself.


We wanted the morphology of the complex to be the most iconic as possible; first, because of the character of the project of being the Headquarters, and secondly because the lot therefore requested it, since it is in the shore line. It would not be suitable to make a project that spreaded horizontally throughout the lot, making the users, internal and external, loose the beautiful site that the coastal zone offers, as it happens at the moment in this same site. For that reason if we pay attention to sketches that arose from the beginning (above), they present a vertical being; in which we would then try to concentrate all the activities, so in this way we interrupt in the smallest possible way the surroundings. 11

The forms and lines that we find in these sketches are based directly on the immediate surroundings of the zone, that are the tourist complex of CASA DE CAMPO and the community of EL LIMON. We can see that there is a combination between lines and straight angles and at the same time curves and elliptical forms. The curved and elliptical forms represent what would be the Casa de Campo complex which displaces according its golf courses and has created a curvilinear morphology in the composition of their master plan. And the straight lines placed informally, represent the informality of the majority of the constructions in the community of El Lim贸n, which would be small wooden houses mainly constructed by their same habitants. 漏 2008 portfolio Cesar Hiraldo



Project: Service Center / Parking lot Building Client: Mr. Alfredo Najri Design: Architect Cesar Hiraldo & Architect Hugo Suriel Location: Delta Comercial, coner of Luperon Ave. and Romulo Betancourt Ave., Santo Domingo, DR. Surface: 30,000m2 , content in 4 levels.

Due to the character of the activities that are going to take place in the building, the design tries to be as light and energetic efficient as possible. The idea to have solid concrete walls was replaced with metal profiles placed horizontally, allowing the passage of natural ventilation and light. The outlines of the building are accentuated with red painted concrete walls.

Project: Conforama Furniture Store Client: Architect Danilo Rodríguez Design: Architect Cesar Hiraldo & Architect Hugo Suriel Location: Corner of 27 de Febrero Ave. with Abraham Lincoln Ave., Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Surface: 3,600 m2 The word “furniture” is without a doubt the essence of the being displayed, trying to give to the building the characteristics of being a great container, that would serve as shelter to the store. The building rises over the street level giving the spectator the sensation that it is floating in the air, and also allowing air and natural light in to the underground parking lot.

Creativity is one the most flexible and versatile abilities that a human being could have. The fact of being a creative person makes you capture, shape and compose innovative ideas in any of the fields of design. Design is the shaped product of creativity. A good architect should be able to work in any field that has to do with the design of a product, it being a house, a piece of furniture, a graphic work, even a book. These are some of pieces we have done in different fields of design.
