Text description provided by the architects. Winner of the “Annual Construction Award” in the category “Development of High-Level Housing Projects 2017” in Maracaibo, Venezuela, the SEI building is a large-scale residential project developed by the architectural firm MAT Latinamerica (http:// mat -la.com) with Design Group Latinamerica (https://www.dg-la.com/)

The project is located on a plot of 410 m², comprising five apartments of 168 m², a roof terrace and ten parking spaces. The general plan of the apartments presents a flexible social space, completely open and free from any visual or structural obstacle, capable of accommodating different spatial organizations at the discretion of the inhabitant. This is possible by practically leaving a passage space from facade to facade, guaranteeing natural ventilation and vital visuals and lighting.

The terrace has a solarium, outdoor showers and a small lounge with barbecue, enjoying the view of Lake Maracaibo from a privileged height. Regarding the construction, the restriction of the car parks forces us to consider a construction with 11 meters of beams and 7 meters of slabs, in order to house them on the ground floor, generating flexible spaces free of structural elements on the upper floors. superiors.

Due to the proportions of the surface to be covered, we used solid double-reinforced tiles, which bridged the significant distances between the supports, allowing us to keep the finished ceilings clean. In order to obtain profitable sections in such a heavy building, we opted for the replacement of the coarse aggregate of the structural concrete by a light aggregate in the form of expanded clay (ALIVEN); lightening the weight of the building by up to 30%, reducing the size of the foundations, becoming one of the largest lightweight reinforced concrete projects of the last decade in Venezuela.

Two of the apartments have been developed using the “turnkey” methodology that characterizes Design Group Latinamerica. This comprehensive service begins with the conceptual design phase through the integration of all disciplines for the execution and delivery of the fully completed project.

Both apartments are characterized by the aesthetic diversity of their spaces with unexpected contrasts and comforting harmonies that offer a new visual concept for residential living. Design Group Latinamerica has combined experience, technology and contemporary design to materialize refined atmospheres that display an elegant, versatile and original language, resulting in a comfortable home with an unmistakable style.

In both apartments, the kitchen of Valcucine Kitchens stands out for its distinctive modulation that integrates the traditional island and the dining room in the same space, having a highly aesthetic and comfortable contemporary character, while optimizing the space by integrating with success two very important environments. In addition, it implements a functional strategy that would allow flexibility of space, for which sliding doors from the Rimadesio factory have been incorporated between the kitchen and the living room to privatize the area depending on the activity, resulting into an ideal alternative to configuring areas on open floors.
