The house is implanted in a pericentral neighborhood of the city of Cordoba, for a young family. The proposal takes the limits and the geometry of the land, locating all the locals of the house to the north, giving it the best sunlight and a permanent link with the yard.

From the architect: The house tries to recover the diurnal areas of social life, without producing circulations, even accessing directly from the gallery, without intermediate spaces distributors. A concrete staircase leads to a terrace space for events.
The idea is summarized in two concrete walls that receive as a ceiling a large slab of exposed concrete, which flies 4 meters, producing the gallery. To preserve even more the vision of the concrete walls, three interior boxes lined with quebracho wood were designed for bathrooms, services and bedrooms.
The structure of the slab is modular, only changing when the house adapts to the boundaries of the land. It is solved with inverted beams that in the gallery becomes in large overhangs for the reinforcement of the slabs.
The materiality is defined by concrete, wood, glass and smoothed concrete floor in all the house The bathrooms were conceived only with one material and each one has a different color, referring to their identity and place in the house.
The program incorporates intermediate spaces as the gallery, the green expansion of the bedrooms and a pond in the master bedroom, which give the necessary environmental conditions. Also in the living room there is a semi-open space of expansion, envisaged with vines that refresh the interior of the house from the south and propose a new place of fire and break.
