“Casas Catalinas” are family homes located in Rio Ceballos, along with the Córdoba mountain range and away from the city. They set up in 5000 square-foot lands.

The project seeks to provide home solutions to middle-class young families that have access to social loans provided by the state. These 1185 square-foot houses have a limited budget and the main guidelines were to have high spatial quality rooms, austere and detail less design, reducing construction costs.

Since the neighborhood is highly populated, the idea was to pull the private areas back where there is less contact with the public. Inner spaces relate with the outside through glass, patios, and galleries. Throughout the houses, a sense of permeability can be felt.

Taking into account the present way of living, the construction materials chosen were low-maintenance. At the same time, each element remains visible, as a way of lowering costs. Foundation, walls, and joists are also lively elements in each house, along with cement bricks, that are left stucco-less.
