Location: Cariló, Pinamar Partido, Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina

Project size: 2,500 square feet

Site size: 13,600 square feet

Program: The clients commissioned the architects to create a vacation home with ocean views, sheltered from harsh winds. The house is a short walk from the beach.

Solution: A large rectilinear volume rests on a triangular piloti and offers unobstructed views and a solarium-like atmosphere for the living spaces within. Perpendicular to it is a smaller, lower volume for bedrooms. The living room, which has floor-to-ceiling glass walls, overlooks the sea on one side, and a private garden on the other. An outdoor stair leads from that level to a lookout perch on the roof.

Construction and materials: The structure is poured-in-place, board-formed concrete, with dark bronze anodized aluminum trim around openings.

Completion date: July 2018
