Text description provided by the architects. The house is located in the outsides of Buenos Aires, inside a private neighbourhood. The most defined quality is its consolidated vegetation. This feature and the plots specific conditions gave as our first approximation. This was to create a special configuration that capture and live with the landscape that surrounded the house.

To do this we developed a system of courtyards, galleries and logias that make the relationship between exterior and interior occur in a continuous way. This special organization, without great hierarchies, give as a result a continuous and sinuous space defined by the relation of full and empty inside the composition. This intermittency identifies the scales of the typical domestic uses.
A new interiority gives place to a new landscape, in contraposition to the most classical typology we use to find in this type of plots. The big prayed and abstract box manifests in its operations the different long and short relations that the landscape proposes. On the ground floor, the house relates with the more immediate, through the combination of courtyard and logias.  Instead, in the first floor we propose two terraces that seek long extent relation looking between the trees canopies that surround them. This different approach to landscape, that differ in each ground, is also reflected in the use during the day and the night. An important issue in housing.

The brick sum up the entire volume and it incorporates naturally to the environment of the neighbourhood. We chose brick as a material, for its geometrical clarity, and the special continuity it allows. In this sense, the priority is not what we build but is the space that, through this construction, we define and configure.
