Casa Neptuna is a house designed by Argentine artist and designer Edgardo Giménez. Located in José Ignacio, a seaside town in Uruguay, this resident is aimed at Amalia Amoedo, an art collector.

As a self-taught artist, Edgardo Giménez is known for his visual art, furniture, and fashion designs. He was a Pop artist in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the 1960s.

This residential design has an initial concept so that homeowners who are collectors can have the time, space, and freedom to enjoy their works. With that concept, Edgardo Giménez designed this house as a series of geometric volumes that are intertwined and designed to stimulate imagination and encourage creative production.

At the top of this building, there are a series of decorative elements in the form of two green arches and a series of abstract shapes in the middle painted in yellow, blue, and pink, thus giving this residence stunning colors. In addition, the repetition of the circle shape on the clover-shaped windows to doors, which is the hallmark of Edgardo Giménez, makes the shape of this house look charming. The design of this house features a form of Pop art expression attached to Edgardo Giméne through selection, light colors with abstract shapes, making a novelty in the form of house building.

But in designing the interior of this house, Edgardo Giménez gives something different, with predominantly white with black accents on some parts aimed at encouraging users to concentrate more on a calm atmosphere. In addition to living at home, it also serves as an art workshop, which demands concentrating more.

Edgardo Giménez has proven how to combine Pop art and architecture to create a unique and striking building by not forgetting the function and efficiency of space and can add more value to the building.
