Golf House by Luciano Kruk Arquitectos
Located in the center of the Costa Esmeralda development near Buenos Aires in Argentina, the Golf House was recently completed by Argentinean studio Luciano Kruk Arquitectos. The site on which the house was constructed sits adjacent to a golf course and contains a sizable hill that places the structure at a higher level than the surrounding homes but also helps separate it from the main street. The general description of this house sounds something like a getaway home that has three bedrooms and baths with a fourth that is independent from the rest while the structure requires as little maintenance as possible.
From the architects: “Golf House is geographically located at the center of Costa Esmeralda, a neighborhood 13 km north of the seaside resort of Pinamar.
Topographically lying on highest area of the neighborhood, both the front and the back of the land plot adjoin a golf court that, along with the —mainly wild— native vegetation, compose its immediate surroundings. Originally, the plot of land was circumscribed by a virgin dune, the slope of which grew in height away from the street, and that the Studio proposed to preserve.
The commission consisted of a vacation home that could be inhabited throughout all four seasons of the year and that required little maintenance. The brief called for three secondary bedrooms (two sharing an external bathroom and an ensuite one), and a master bedroom, completely independent of the others, served by another bathroom and in open relation with a space that could be used both as a private living room and a painting atelier. “
