Sakura House

Estudio PK as Architects

The land Is surrounded with an environment of the Argentine Delta. Is implanted in a trapezoidal batch overlooking a lagoon. Its north orientation, towards one of its sides, provides the sun light to a patio with abundant vegetation, which Is used to generates the entrance of the house. It works as a bellows and an articulator; as a transition between the street and the access to the house, it is the heart of the house and all the circulations turn towards this patio.

The west-facing facade has a sliding gate that is hidden when it opens with the intention of generating a scenographic sensation towards pedestrian access through a path that changes its forms. The idea is to go through different sensations: first we can appreciate the music room, with different instruments used by the family, which also eventually opens and turnos inti a multipurpose space, generating flexibility of environments. Así we continue walking, we can find the central patio with abundant vegetation and the entrance door that is hierarchized with a wooden paneling that manages to make it go unnoticed.

If we keep moving forward, we can cross below a floating volume, which is the clients' home office space, which also has a balcony to the double height of the living room. This semi-covered frames the landscape and directs us towards the pool where the water mirror merges with the lagoon. From there we can enter the gallery directly, without going through the house.

On the south side, all services and supports are located.

The materialization of the house is of exposed concrete of boards combined with phenolic; It has a double wall, rpt dvh aluminum openings and travertine floors.

The staircase is one of the main elements, it is located in the entrance hall and in contrast to the exposed concrete that has its natural imprint, it unfolds in a light and warm way. Is compoused by loose steps and by means of an embedment system they give the sensation of being in flight.
