Text description provided by the architects. North Chacras is a new residential area, well established in what was an agricultural area, minutes from the city of Cordoba. The project was born from the need to Facundo and Juan Cruz (brothers and each with its own family) to have their own house, having this land in common.
By the provision of the lot and with the intention of being fair in proportions and dimensions the land was split longitudinally in a 6,2mts by long each.
Each unit consists of ground floor partially covered parking, a unique space in which daily life (living room / kitchen / dining room / gallery / grill) is developed and integrated by mobile panels can be moved responding to the different usage needs.
The intention was to create a flexible and integrated (interior – exterior) space, by using sliding floor to ceiling carpentry that occupies the entire width of the apartment. Providing full connection with the gallery that acts as a transition between inside and outside. The ground floor is completed by a wc and stairs connecting with the upper level.
Bedrooms are located in the second floor. One of them (the suite) facing the street, and the other two bedrooms have a terrace in common in connection with the courtyard.
The group presents itself as a single volume with pure lines and volumes. The horizontality reinforces the whole. The use of stone "taco san luis" interior and exterior provides warmth to the spaces. Sliding sun visors were used in the windows facing north. Parking deck with perforated metal acts as a solar screen over the entrance area.
