Juan Manuel

Posted on Wed, 11 Feb 2009 by KiM

Juan Manuel Montes de Oca is a young architect from Buenos Aires, Argentina, who emailed us recently. He just began his independent career, having worked for an architect before, and wanted to share with us his first work. It’s the design of a small apartment for a young man who was on a tight budget. Juan Manuel designed EVERYTHING – the sofa, table, lighting, all but the Jacobsen chairs. I am so impressed. I adore the low wall unit that runs the length of the space – ideal for HIFI storage and propping artwork. I am also quite taken with the dining table and how it attaches to the wall.








Juan Manuel also included some photos of a small boutique he designed 2 years ago that is so sleek and modern I had to share it too.



Thank you so much Juan Manuel for sharing your work with us. I think you’ve got a very successful career ahead of you!

Love his use of concealed lighting and especially love the dining table wall unit combo. These are great solutions for small spaces.

great pics. not so sure about the rug choice though. i think it cheapens the whole look. other than that, bravo!!!!!

Marisol says:

I love how he plays with light and the glass table of the dining room!But I also think that the rug is a bit too much. But nice work

Sol says:

I don’t like the rug either. But it’s just a rug. You can toss it away any time 😀

Juan M. Bersano says:

Juan, i like your work!, is beautifull!. Great. Simple. Minimalist. Contemporary.

H. says:

Your work is a very sensitive in dealing with indirect lighting, but the carpet does not seem the most successful It´s the Rudolph Pasivotta hand in your training
Got a lot ahead Bravo!
