.  White House  .

House.
Ciudad de Buenos Aires. Argentina. 2012.

The house is located in a residential area where tall buildings are particularly restricted and they require neighborhood approval to be built (unlike other places, a rarity in this city). However, due to repeated code changes, towers surround the field. This paradox or setback was used as a starting point for the overall design. The house, designed as a regular white and pure prism, is affected by the presence of these buildings and reacts to them by folding its sides and twisting.
The folds of the white house organize and define both the interior and exterior spaces.
Inside, we intended to minimize the walls and to recourse to furniture to split the space that is stratified into four levels. Each level has a particular use: service area, social, children and parents.
These levels are associated with the vertical circulation and a library of 7 meters high.
The house is built entirely in white concrete by using limited materials inside. A concrete rustic wall provides contrast and it surrounds the whole outside landscape.
