Both members the couple work in Escobar and the construction of their first home in Loma Verde, far from the civic and administrative center of the area implies a change in their lifestyle.

Floor Plan

The lot dimensions are 15m wide x 30m deep. On the terrain there are three large trees that define the location of the house.

The house of 105 sqm is organized on a single floor and around a courtyard that opens onto the garden on one side. The interior height of the house is 2,40m with a living room ceiling of double height as to generate a window that incorporates the existing trees.


Because of a tight economic frame both material and labor-wise, the house was resolved with a traditional load-bearing construction of 18cm ceramic brick with precast light ceiling slabs. This is the construction method and technology that is most utilized around the Greater Buenos Aires. Foundations are solved by a linked beam with piling with a diameter of 20cm going 150cm deep into the ground.

The openings are sliding doors of bent sheet metal and cedar. Along the entire face of the house towards the garden runs a gallery, 1mt wide, that produces a small interspace between facade and an iron enclosure of fencing 2 "x 3/4", constructed as folding sheets, 50cm wide.
