Text description provided by the architects. The House Cronos is located in Pinamar, atlantic coast of the province of Buenos Aires. The project responds to the need to build a holiday home for summer and winter in full contact with nature.

The land is in its natural state, presents a significant amount of typical conifers of the area, a sandy soil and visuals open to the forest. The House Cronos seeks to manifest a way of understanding and living a holiday home, based on contact with light and nature, flexibility and quality of spaces, the nobility of technique and materials and the search for an image that reflect its own contemporaneity.

The outer enclosure in both the walls and the cover is solved with white corrugated sheet. The openings are made of white aluminum. The floors of the public areas interior and exterior, as well as the doors, are wooden. The interior spaces are characterized by the contrast between the preponderance of neutral tones and details in colors.
