The property is located in La Caleta, a coastal town 25 kilometers at the north of the city of Mar del Plata.

The premise was to take advantage of a privileged environment, so the visual becomes the main objective of the project. Analyzing how the landscape is perceived from the house and how it is viewed from the outside, is one of the requirements defined by the firm.

In order to meet the needs of a young family that was going to grow, the house was designed to be built in two stages: The first stage (ground floor) could operate independently during the time of construction of the second stage (first floor)

From these premises housing is formed by two overlapping rectangular prisms, creating an \”L\” type, which maximizes the green landscape and sunlight in the public areas of the house. The first stage contains the social areas of the house; the living room, kitchen, dining room, all with direct connection to the yard through large windows. An example of this is the gallery that ensures continuity between the kitchen, the area of the grill and the park. It also has a bathroom, a laundry room and bedroom which is used as a home office.

In the second stage, a transverse rectangular prism is added. It has a bathroom and two bedrooms. The intersection of both volumes generates an access and covered parking for two cars,and a terrace above the social sector.

The depth of the facade allows sunlight control in each room, filtering and restricting it in the most exposed facades (northeast and northwest) and allowing access to the southeast and southwest facades.

The different windows, flat or deep, show the thickness of the facade and generate pictures that frame the landscape from inside. This effect is accentuated from the contrast between the depth of the white wall, and the slender black carpentry.
