COL House

The project consists of a weekend house for a family of three, in a gated community north of the province of Buenos Aires. The layout of the community proposes a natural environment around a series of artificial lagoons, suggesting a very close relationship with suburban utopias common to other latitudes. The house is actually one of the first buildings in the area. The lack of contextual references such as a natural landscape or existing buildings led us to focus on the relationship between the empty lot, its buildable area and the gentle slope towards the lagoon, and to adopt projecting mechanisms similar to those of architectures who propose less direct dialogues with their immediate surroundings.
