Simply Red: A Vacation House in Uruguay

June 24, 2013

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).

Photographs by Tami Christiansen via Casa Vogue; first spotted on SF Girl by Bay.
