As an architect, Camilo Policastro strives to create open and integrated spaces with a toolkit of simple, raw materials.
For a family home in the Coghlan neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Policastro used textured, rendered, and exposed concrete; aluminum; and wood to forge a three-story structure.
The home becomes progressively more private as it ascends from the open-plan living area to the upstairs rooms.
“My favorite space in the house is the ground floor,” Policastro says. “Especially in summer when you open the windows, the garden enters into the room, and it becomes a singular space.”
