  • lighting and cross ventilation,

The land is 2,500 m² and is located in a country club on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Site where aged trees predominate, which was respected in its entirety for the location of the house.
The axis of the work is an internal patio surrounded by ramps that connect covered spaces with other semi-covered ones, generating a fluid transition route between the spaces that are inhabited.
The house was implanted at the bottom of the land, to receive sun throughout the day.
