Located in the Country Club EL PASE, Santo Tomé, Argentina, Ignacio Arrillaga + Walter M. Parola constructed a two-storey home for a single family. The house was built on 344.0 m2 site in a regular field of 20 x 40 meters and finished in 2012.
The design of the house was selected to improve the relationship inside the home with the surrounding area.
The firm intended to generate views back to the site where a golf course is located and used as a visual focus of major attraction.
The house exterior is divided into semi-open spaces including gallery and BBQ space, open space where creeds and pool are located.
When it comes to the front part of the house, the firm decided to preserve the privacy. With that in mind, they came with a strategic opening design that meets the natural light entry and ventilation requirements through a single large central opening on the top floor.
The central opening achieves perspective of the site from the main circulation.
From the inside, you can see that the house is quite straightforward in design. It only includes necessary and accessory items to emphasize the homeowners’ constructive and functional nature.
However, they still include several aesthetic displays to adorn the house.
The firm decided to not include any wall or partition and just let the living room open to the formal dining room and kitchen. The design is quite simple with modern furniture as well as pendant and accent lightings to help light up each space.
The kitchen went with a black and white combo with a pair of stools and black kitchen.
There is also another spacious and light-filled dining area for a more informal occasion. Through the sliding glass door, you can step outside and enjoy the rear view of the house, including the pool.
