Recently the L.A. based architects Johnston Marklee & Associates finished a new residential project in Argentine. This sculptural two-storey concrete house was developed in partnership with Diego Arraigada Arquitecto and is another example for the monolithic appearance of several of JML´s projects.
“Designed for an ecologically rich site on the Argentine plains near Rosario, this 3,000 square foot house optimizes a compact dwelling space by maximizing the experience of the surrounding views and prioritizing environmental performance. The taurus shape creates expansive spaces by layering volume and view within and throughout the house. The siting, orientation and form of the house minimize dependence on mechanical systems, making use of natural light, air flow, and alternative energy systems to create a dynamic living experience directly engaged with the local site conditions.”
