A Concrete Hillside Home With a Green Roof and Killer Views
Set in the Calamuchita Valley in the center of the province of Córdoba, Argentina, Casa FM is a stunning 3,444-square-foot vacation home perched on the edge of the mountainside. Its rectangular concrete form contains two autonomous houses—each engaging with their spectacular surroundings on distinctly different levels.
The lower one-bedroom house has a more intimate relationship with the terrain, while the two-bedroom upper house—showcased here—enjoys a greater connection with the surrounding environment. An indoor/outdoor patio offers breathtaking views of the valley below—including the lake and the surrounding mountain range.

The low profile and the flat living roof help integrate the home into its surroundings. Concrete, a low maintenance material, was chosen for aesthetic and practical purposes, but it also responds to structural needs to "help balance the presence [of the structure] within the environment."
