Simply Red: A Vacation House in Uruguay
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
When Andrea Summa and Marlo Trejos bought four 19th century houses in the tiny village of Garzón, in the province of Roche in Uruguay, they turned to Diego Montero of M+ Studio to create a modern indoor/outdoor compound. They gave him full creative license—and the result is a modernist concrete structure with windows and doors painted bright red (in contrast to the rustic houses that surround it on the town square).
