Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Concrete houses used to look dull, straight and static. However, creative folks from BAK Arquitectos dedicated their mind and ideas to put more aesthetics to a summer house in Mar Azul, Costa Esmeralda, Argentina. Built with two rooms and an additional sporadic-use third room, the summer house project looks on how to capitalize the difference in level between the street and within the lot.
Different levels of house is gained by designing the house in two volumes perpendicularly intersecting in “L” shape. This allows residents to have more privacy to the volume that contains the private uses of the house by resting over the level of the lot and placing it perpendicular to the front.
The higher volume, of public use, is settled beside the front line taking advantage of the acacia trees that provide privacy and allow the enjoyment of the far views into the wilderness environment, in turn its elevated position sought to provide the house some presence from the street leaning out slightly above the level of the acacias. This volume was generated as an elongated prism, supported at one end over the volume of the bedrooms.
At the opposite end rests on a blind lateral wall on which, in the lower level, the grill was located taking advantage of the partially covered generated as flexible use space serving both for storing of two cars as for preparation and enjoyment of the classic roast. This space is protected from external visuals in part by the difference of level and in part by the abundance of acacias on the front of the lot, so that there can easily develop all kinds of activities.
I don't know if your power-bills could as high as two-thousand bucks a month, but sure this tips will help you out of it.
