The idea was to design a family residence at a private neighborhood in the north of Buenos Aires with modern and contemporary accents, highlighting the materials used, to generate a warm atmosphere and a homey feeling. Black metal, black flagstone and lapacho wood was the perfect combination for the job.

The house for this young and active family should be versatile and have great communication between the spaces. With this premise, we took the romantic idea of generating strong sensations in transition spaces, designing the access through a water mirror with an immaculate magnolia, while under the stairs we can find a bar to serve special drinks to friends and the hall from the top floor escorted by an elevated garden. In this way, these otherwise still spaces where transformed and now contribute to give life to their home.

We always take special attention to the shades of colors of the materials chosen, as we try not to paint but to generate color through the materials itself, which helps us to communicate the style we want for each different project.
