Few homes enjoy the privilege of being set in such fine surroundings as the L4 House in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The place is Costa Esmeralda, in a neighborhood that’s 200 meters away from the sea, in the middle of a marine pine forest.
The home is constructed of concrete – chosen for keeping a good shape over time with low maintenance, but also for its color and texture that blend in seamlessly with the natural environment of the place. Access is done via a narrow staircase found between two opaque concrete walls, leading into a light and airy space: the main floor. Here you’ll find a large kitchen-dining area on one side and the living room on the other, visually connected with each other via a central staircase that leads to the roof. Four bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) are located in the corners of the 1.970 sq ft (183 m2) house, offering extra privacy. Transparent walls, generous-sized windows, linear cracks on the walls, and skylight windows make way for the sunlight to bathe the interior, while also establishing connection with the beautiful surrounding nature.
The cherry on top is a roof wooden deck, fitted with a shower area and two adjoining pools; a quiet space for contemplation providing 360-degree views of the tree tops and the Argentinian sea.
