Simple luxury at Fresno House in Cariló, Argentina

Contemporary-Architectural-Design-Argentina-14

Award-winning architect Felix Raspall and Federico Papandrea have joined forces to design the Fresno House project. The luxury family home is surrounded by a forest and can be found in Cariló, Argentina.

According to the architects: “Fresno house is a small summer house located in a forest near the south Atlantic Ocean. The slope and location existing trees are the major determinants of geometric and site strategies of the project: the house sits in a small clearing of the forest and sits perpendicular to the slope to gain transversal transparency.

“The interior design of the property such as the living room, dining room, kitchen and studio are located in the ground floor, open to the outdoor terrace, swimming-pool and patio through floor-to-ceiling windows. The double-height outdoor space by the grill is the main gathering space in the summer. The upper level houses three bedrooms with access to a large terrace.

“The main materials of the house are faced concrete, glass and white-rendered masonry.”
