In the 80s , Carlos Paez Vilaro was attracted by an ancient wooden house located in the region of El Tigre, Argentina , which had been installed at the site in 1889 from Ireland .
Absolutely impressed by this abandoned house and its wonderful jungle setting , did not hesitate to face the challenge and revive to live in it .
Parallel to recycling old house and a few feet away , the artist began construction of ” Bengal ” atelier – residence of Argentina .
In doing so , he followed the style of Uruguay Casapueblo , ie employing the “archi – texture ” concept modeled with bread oven.
Among leafy trees , pine , magnolias and palm trees vigorous the main house is located. In each environment the artist joined arcades , alcoves , African figures , bronze murals , domes and steep extended skyward , covered with colored glass .
This magnificent work of the artist is a stronghold of the architecture in one of the most picturesque and nostalgic Buenos Aires neighborhoods.
” Located in the district of San Isidro , Buenos Aires , his private chapel park ” Cypresses ” is a result of everything learned in the art of building and integration experience , as each detail has been carefully studied by the artist. In his stained Carlos Páez Vilaró reflected a garden where birds, insects, fish and corals pass melt under a boiling constellation of shooting stars, comets, planets , suns and moons. The openings are far from the concept of the classic window and the floor was conceived as a “carpet – garden ” of polished concrete, where the simplicity of the design comes in bloom and culminates in the sun.
The artist wanted the bark chapel hinted a nest of baker and materials were the most simple , devoid of ostentation and luxury.
Considering a painter of life , he found it difficult to create a temple to death. Ask a chapel was more than just building a house , modeling a sculpture or a painting . The work grew out of the shape of two hands clutching a prayer , open to all religions , races , languages, with its towers framed by the landscape and sky domes stroking .
