Text description provided by the architects. Belavista House rises between the hills of Rio Ceballos, a small town outside heavily populated Córdoba city. A white and pure body, finely sitting on a flat piece of land, and surrounded by native vegetation.

This one-floor, 221-square meter house adjusts to the needs of a young family, whose primary focus was to take advantage of the attractive views through a large amount of glazed surfaces, but saving the privacy of a home. The access to the house is through a patio that connects the outside with the inside, along a water fountain and opened to the peaceful valley views. The social area is located close to the entrance hallway, and is the only area where the inside of the house visually relates with the street. The private area has two bedrooms that share a bathroom, and they are both connected through a balcony, which also links with the outside garden.

The idea was to push the private areas away from the street, with easy access to the garden where the everyday activities happen. From the street, the house is hidden in her blind walls. The greatest amount of tension happens towards the corner of the lot, where the architecture creates the access of the house, through a transition area between public and private.

Another concept was to work on a light solid box that levitates a few centimeters off the ground, reflecting its shadow, and that extinguishes towards the corner, converting full into empty. The solid disappears to transform air into water.
