Casa en Altos del Sol in Buenos Aires, Argentina



Here’s another striking contemporary residence. This time it’s located in Altos del Sol, as the name clearly suggests, an area in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The residence was a project developed by AMD Arquitectos and its construction was completed in 2009. Casa en Altos del Sol covers a total area of 2.475 square feet. It’s a two-story residence with a very distinctive design.

This modern residence has an interesting shape consisting in a compact structure. As seen from the street, the house is impressive but not out of the ordinary. It has few windows and there’s not a lot you could say about the interior from there. However, the back of the house tells a completely different story. Because it faces the courtyard where there’s privacy, the architects were able to incorporate a large amount of glass. In fact, the back side of the house is almost completely made of glass. It’s like a huge glass wall that allows you see everything inside.

It was a bold choice but there are some clear advantages to that decision. Obviously, the glass walls allow a lot of natural light to get inside. Moreover, they provide panoramic views over the surrounding area which is always relaxing. And since the private rooms of the house are on the other side, privacy was not such an important element in this case.
