Located in a neighborhood on the outskirts of the city of La Plata, this detached house is built on a corner lot of 20 x 60 meters at the intersection of 23rd and 510th streets.
The Urban Ordinance Code requires, for this zone, withdrawals both from the dividing lines and from the municipal lines of both streets.
The needs program aimed at a 4-bedroom house developed on 2 floors, with special emphasis on the flexibility of using the public spaces covered (living room - kitchen) and open spaces (central patio and gallery) and its relationship with outdoor spaces. -
With these project premises, we developed a "U" ground floor around a central courtyard, allowing cross-visual visualization throughout the site, where the social sectors are developed; and a compact high plant as container of the private area of the house.
The materiality is defined with the use of different textures of concrete seen in slabs and partitions, white walls, PVC exterior carpentry and fixed and mobile parasols as elements of solar control and enclosure.
In this house, certain project guidelines that we have been developing in other works are maintained, such as the search for interior-exterior spatial continuity and flexibility through large glazed panels and large galleries; the structural-constructive resolution as the axis of the design; and the exhaustive development of the executive project as a fundamental element of the design process.
In the project of this house we try to synthesize the different principles that define our architectural action: The simple and pure lines volumetry; the timeless and sober design language; the development of the detail, keeping correlation between the whole and the parts; and the careful selection and use of materials, colors and textures.
