BENGOCHEA RESIDENCE – MODERN – EXPOSED BLOCK BOTH SIDES
Rendering shows front right perspective of the residence.
Exposed interior walls throughout the home.
The exterior exposed block finish is “shot blast” at the manufacturer, which results in a semi-course surface that reveals the aggregate within the block. Shot blast shown in photos above and below.
The interior finish is a ground face or burnished treatment that provides a very smooth surface that shows the individuality of block aggregate content. Burnished shown in photos above and below.

INTERIOR CONSTRUCTION VIEWS
ITS IN THE DETAILS
The architect masterfully designed the entire building on block bond (8″ increments). Notice the uniformity of each jamb requiring no cuts.
The electrical box installation is precisely cut resulting in a professional finish.
Arrow 1 shows the consistency of the block dimensions, including around and above the fireplace.
Arrows 2 and 3 illustrate where brackets are solidly embedded into the block so that heavy floating shelving can be securely installed below and above the fireplace. The wood piece above the fireplace is temporarily placed.
At the back of the fireplace, the block is cored to allow for venting and gas lines.
EXTERIOR CONSTRUCTION VIEWS
There is no seam from where the top of stem wall ends and the house begins. Frank Lloyd Wright coined this treatment “organic architecture”.
