Last year the Buenos Aires based architectural practice BAK arquitectos finished this massive single family villa on a sloped lot in the forest around the Argentinean capital.

“The particularity of this engagement was that, although the requirement was about two bedrooms and their respective bathrooms, the social area must be large enough with the possibility of being adapted to different uses as they frequently receive many friends.
The program was resolved by crossing two prisms perpendicularly and placing it in a forest clearing between the trees. The strong slope of the land was exploited to hide part of the program, reducing in this way the presence of the built volume.”
