Pedro Lvini and Rafael Solano Office of Psychologists in Uruguay Garden

Architects Pedro Lvini and Rafael Solano have created a psychologist’s office behind a long concrete wall in Uruguay’s Suez de la Costa.

The low-sliding structure in an existing property garden is 35 square meters and is concealed by a full-size wall.

As the door enters the psychologist’s office, the club connects the large garden with a small private yard.

The main facade is characterized by an oversized basket basin, which leads to cantilevers at the entrance and rainwater from the roof on a rock near the front door.

Patients are housed in a small waiting area below this overlapping office, which is connected to the kitchen and toilet.

The psychologist’s office itself occupies half of the small building and has rows of windows overlooking the closed courtyard.

The office is an eucalyptus paneling chosen by architects as an economical choice to suit the owner’s budget.

The door connects patients and the doctor directly to the garden, allowing them to use the outdoor space during their sessions.

In the middle of the garden is a young tree, a small bench that echoes the opening of the main wall and moves forward under the windows.

The exterior is finished with cement fiber panels, which have been selected as a budget-friendly decision.

These long, thin panels are placed horizontally to highlight the lower part of the building.

Other projects in South America include a parking garage with framed architecture and the Delpina River, and a beach house.
