Text description provided by the architects. A small house for a young couple who lives in Buenos Aires and wants to get away to a suburban area. They have some savings and a small site to build dreams and future memories.

We talk about construction; they want to build with earth. They imagine an adobe house in a very rainy place.

We propose to cook the mud and we design it with traditional brick. Walls, floors and ceilings are made of brick. We put paint to obtain a difference between vertical and horizontal planes. A vault rules the character of space.

We talk about fire. They remember their childhoods back in Argentinean Patagonia. Their parents used to cook lamb and cow meat. We propose a fire pit in the courtyard, so they can have those memories back.

But that fire will also be the light and heat for many “peñas” to come: a gathering of friends and family where they can play the guitar at night and sing folk and tango music.
