Text description provided by the architects. The project of this house in Tigre, in the outskirts of Buenos Aires, re-examines some of the traditional assumptions of suburban house projects, such as closed spaces and functions clearly separated in different levels.

The design proposes a continuous sequence of spaces of different heights that lead from the more public areas of the house towards the bedrooms. In this sequence, a living area raised 1,4 meters over the ground level offers uninterrupted views of the lake next to the site. The library and working area is open to the living room and dining rooms below. The large veranda overlooking the lake is designed as a continuation of the multi-level interior.

It provides spaces to relax outdoor and to cook and share traditional asados (barbecues) with friends. The resulting feelings of spaciousness and luminosity bring together different functions of the house, as well as the views to the garden and the lake.
