Architect

GONZALO MARDONES:

I am a Chilean architect from Universidad Católica de Chile who comes from a family where architecture is a part of our DNA. Besides practicing architecture as a profession, I have given lessons and guided numerous degree projects in many faculties in Chile.

Casa Juve

At the office our team develops different kind of projects. Some of them have been published by the main architecture magazines and distinguished in national and international Architecture Interine Meetings, which makes us feel proud and grateful.

CASA JUVE, CACHAGUA, CHILE. 
This project is a very special one for me, not only because it is the home of a very close friend, but because the surroundings and its proximity to the sea gave me the inspiration to create every space of this house.

There are many relevant aspects to be considered. When I choose a wood floor, I think about sustainability, quality and the protection of natural resources. I also consider that this floor will be the protagonist of the space, where the decorative objects must be in tune with the architecture and environment.

That is why I chose the BOEN oak floor, because its oil and natural finish gives the floor a very natural appearance with a neutral tone that blends with the sand and other colors of the landscape.

I chose the BOEN brand mainly because it is well-known for its reliability and for the excellent service I found in ATIKA to develop the project in a smooth process. The choice also guaranteed the standard of quality requested for this project.

I wanted to create a beautiful house in a wonderful setting next to the ocean that would be a place of relaxation and recreation for a beloved family.
