The Furgovilla. Residence of the architect (Honorable Mention Architecture Biennale 1996). 500 m ². III Arroyo Hondo, Santo Domingo, 1996-2004. This work is unique within the entire portfolio of the architect because it acted as designer and client. The Furgovilla or House of Trucks is the way in which Daniel Pons called his residence, a work which combines both fantasy of every architect to make your own home with the mischievous imagination and found art resources (trucks, silos, tanks) that rather than limit this project offered a new alternative for innovation and responsiveness.
Furgovilla is a compendium of the vernacular sensitized and tropical in conjunction with the formal architecture, a mix of issues that come together in a work clearly communicative scenic private and homely face, and the professional side of the architect as the project’s direct references.
This house uses a deliberate run double code in two chronological stages: the first, grounded in four forty-foot containers containing rooms, dining room, kitchen and service areas, geared to the tropical regarding use of materials (use of zinc roofing and bamboo, polished concrete floors and stone), colors and vegetation management, and a second, addressed to the austere language of modern architecture, designed to monochrome and pure volumetric spaces like the library, lounge, study and projection room, two sides that contrast and result in tropical and industrial amalgamation, a cozy interior world, a brilliant orchestration of space, an original and interesting, the corner life of the architect.
