A young couple approached Andres Remy Arquitectos to build a home that was similar to a previous ARA design they had previously seen. Liking ARA’s work, they gave the architects freedom to create a home that would take advantage of their new lakeside lot located 30km from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The lot size was 20m wide and 50m long with panoramic views of the lake on one end and street access on the other.
To keep easy access to the street while staying up close and personal with the lake, the architects chose to divide the home into two volumes connected by a glass bridge that traveled over a shallow interior courtyard pool. The volume closest to the street would house the kitchen and dining zones while the other contains the living areas. The courtyard pool allows the sun’s rays to enter, bounce off of the water and refract into the home on both sides.
