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!
