Contemporary Concrete House Takes Advantage Of A Small Corner Lot
Situated on a corner lot of only 20 meters by 60 meters, this concrete house places a big emphasis on the palette of materials, colors, finishes and textures used throughout its design. These elements combined to ensure a strong connection between the building and its immediate surroundings and also helps to facilitate the transitions between the internal and external spaces.
The presence of large glazed panels and big gallery spaces further contributes to the creation of a seamless and natural experience. The house was designed in 2017 by Gianserra + Lima arquitectos and is located on the outskirts of the La Plata region in Argentina.
The interior spaces are organized on two floors with radically different proportions. The ground floor is large and spacious and contains all the social spaces, some of which are open and some of which are closed. The transition between them is smooth and seamless, just like the transition between the deck and the backyard swimming pool and garden area. By comparison, the upper floor is small, compact and considerably less transparent, containing the private spaces. Nevertheless, the relationship with the outdoors remains strong.
