Estudio Opaco recently completed this stunning private residence located in Valle Escondido, Córdoba, Argentina, in 2019. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.
From the architects: Located on a corner lot facing a historic school, we sought to protect the house from the outside and open it completely to the inside. The project was designed on two levels, a ground floor for the social area and an upper floor for the private area. On the outside, brick prevails for the entire envelope, even being used as a screening to intensify the privacy. Concrete was also used as a complementary element that appears outside and inside the house. These locally sourced materials were strategically chosen for their durability and insulation properties that obstruct much of the heat from entering the home.
Inside, we sought to generate spacious and bright spaces that accompany the life of this young family. Wood was commonly used for all furniture, floor, and ceiling finishes as a way to bring warmth into the home. At the entrance, you are greeted by a floating staircase and a large window that erases all boundaries between the inside and outside garden. For the private sector, two wings were created, one for children and one for parents with a private terrace.
The project was carefully designed to adapt to future changes the family will have in the upcoming years.
