PH Loft Arias in Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Argentina by HM.Arquitectos

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Article source: HM.Arquitectos

From to barbecue shed to loft. Construction was organized through a very specific set of needs from the owner. It had to be an area with independent access within the house, one that not only would solve the needs for leisure and recreation, but that would also have the asset of functioning along with the garden as a backing for those needs. This would result in a barbecue shed/playroom/office as well as the guest rooms.
