Carassale House by BAK Architects:
“Costa Esmeralda is a private venture on the dunes of the coast of Buenos Aires, 390 km (240 mi) from the city of Buenos Aires. This is a latest development with a young acacia and pine trees afforestation with a number of consolidated forest sectors.
The batch to intervene is at the edge of a zone of youthful vegetation. It is positioned among a greater location with a dense plantation to the left, and a lower location to the correct, with no vegetation sown and abundant pastures of the region. Especially, the land has some acacias and only 9 young maritime pines-mostly clustered near the front line, one particular in the center and one particular in the background, so the undertaking commences with the premise of preserving all present trees. This was a very distinct request, as one member of the couple who contacts the studio is an architect that, getting unable to get care of the project due to time and distance, turns to colleagues with whom she shares architectural criteria.
In the 1st interview they say that, although the family members is composed of the couple plus 3 little kids, the concept is to have numerous locations to rest given that they program to share the residence with friends more than extended stays. For the same cause, the social region also had to be generously sized. Consequently it is advised to solve some bedrooms as cabins, as the property could not exceed 150 or 160 m2 (one,615 or 1,720 ft2). The gathering place will integrate the kitchen and have a fireplace which must enable barbecuing, when is not possible to do it outdoors. It should also have an outside grill, growth locations and a spot to be utilised as a laundry space and warehousing for seaside objects.
Was also highlighted the need to have a really fluid relationship with the outside in all rooms. The formalization of the residence would have to be austere and of very low effect in this rough environment, very appreciated by the clients.
It was determined to find the property in the central spot of the residence – the highest and with just a single tree to integrate-resolving it into 2 mutually perpendicular volumes intersect at diverse heights, following the contours of the great deal, separating at the junction to allow in a younger maritime pine that more than time will become the major character.
The very first volume is an elongated prism, parallel to the street and open at the 2 principal sides generating a semi covered which integrates the grove of trees situated in the front with the rest of the batch. The 2nd, an additional elongated prism found 3 methods beneath to match the contour of the good deal, homes 4 bedroom and resolves 2 plainly differentiated facades: the western, closed, corresponds to the circulation and shared bathroom, and the eastern, open, with large windows making it possible for the integration of the 3 bedrooms with the outside. The last bedroom, the principal, opens to the backyard with an critical semi covered space and a private terrace protected from the view of the rest of the home and overlooking a rugged landscape that will not vary over time due to the fact there are no neighbors adjoining the back of the house.”
