New House in Rosario

FYF Residence

The FYF Residence is a 2,000 sqft single-family house located in the outskirts of Rosario, Argentina.

FYF Residence

The project can be described as a spatial and physical attempt to challenge the planar stability and homogeneity of the Pampa’s landscape in a domestic setting.

FYF Residence

The house is conceived as a monolithic solid, a monochrome form only punctuated by subtle inflections that help establish and mediate complex physical relationships among the different spaces of the residence, while maintaining a sense of identity and privacy between them.

Specifically, a supple cast in site reinforced concrete shell constitutes the body of the house. Problematic transitions are registered into the shell through local folds and bends. Punctuations in those transitions produce cut holes where fenestration is located, allowing for conditions of luminosity, ventilation, and view. Moreover, through their shape and disposition, they experientially accentuate or play down the effectsofthe mass.

FYF Residence

The residence is organized from a basic disposition of public and private spaces connected by a central corridor and articulatedby a small patio. The internal atmosphere offers a contrasting effect between calmness and fluidity.

Situated in close proximity to public spaces, a pliant pool produces a cascading physical continuum with the body of the house. By torquingthe volume and merging it with the ground, the pool complicates the spatial stability of the house and activates a sequence of oblique views towards it and beyond the outer landscape.
