MD House in Bariloche

MD House is located in the Patagonia región in Argentina in a site with a subtle slope and views towards the Gutierrez Lake and the Catedral, Ventana and Otto Hills.

On the first approach, two interrogations arise: what is the relation between the project and the landscape and how does one live in a spacious home.

House in Bariloche

The architects were looking for a building in which the human presence is manifested by the abstract geometry, which in juxtaposition with the surrounding landscape, enhances nature. This dichotomy, extends throughout the whole execution of the project.

The house is divided into volumes connected by spaces which are exposed to the landscape. Therefore, the access to any of these volumes implies going in and out between the house and landscape. Getting exposed to the landscape means taking refuge in the house itself. One becomes part of the landscape and watches it through framed through the window.

The idea is built by five prisms; each one of them is rotated from its axis to comply with the roof´s slope regulations. This way, both the roof and the volume make up one single abstract element.

The prisms are joined by various connectors (stairs, hallways, and bridges), they are built voids. The contrast between the connectors and closed prisms, create a rhythm in the promenade of the house.

We tried achieving the feeling of coziness by the separation of the volumes. Smaller spaces become appropriate more easily. The distance of each volume from one another, enable them to be inhabited independently. Therefore, a spacious home located in a natural setting, enhances its landscape as well as it invites to be inhabited at the same time.
