Contemporary House V, Argentina

I + GC [arquitectura] an Argentina-based design studio has completed the House V project. Completed in 20122, the contemporary property is located in Funes, Argentina.

According to the architects: “The idea for this design project was to build a house around a patio without having to resort to the cloister. Thus the ‘V’ shaped building, a volume that folds on itself making a plant with this form that lets the garden in its arms. This becomes the heart of the project.

“It is a fluid volume that is detached from the floor to the front turning down until fully leaning backwards. The work gives the feeling of movement, of a compact mass that was pulled up to the present form. This is emphasised with the longitudinal windows and unevenness in the top of the facades.

“This fluid mass shows the pool as an extension of the contemporary Argentinian house.

“You enter the property through a central hall, the junction point between the two main branches, the service and the room. Here you can also find the stairs to access the upper floor. This is illuminated through the crease of the slab in this area that allows the entry of daylight.

“Once up, we find the suite to one side and two bedrooms to the other. To get to the rooms, you must go through a hallway which is filled with coloured lights.

“Dynamism and fluidity are the outstanding features of the strategy of this work and its relation to the ground.”
