AC House by Estudio GM ARQ
The AC House is another outstanding piece of work by Estudio GM ARQ. If you are not familiar with this studio, you’ve probably missed our articles showcasing their design of the stellar N House in Belen de Escobar and their contemporary design of the A House in Buenos Aires.
This residence also follows that elegant simplistic look of the modern and contemporary styles. In this case, the building is located in Los Lagos and its 3,767 square feet are divided in two levels.
The property, located in Los Lagos, Nordelta, was designed as two crossbars forming a T. The ground floor takes the width of the land between lateral retreats and opens to the back garden, so it can be integrated to the main public rooms.
In addition, the access was relegated to achieve a generous garden space in the front, which allows to enjoy views and cross ventilation to the green spaces.
The upper floor houses a master suite with bathroom and dressing room, and two bedrooms sharing a second bathroom. Through the operation of crossing a plant with the other it was possible to capture distant views of the greens and the lagoon in the bedrooms of the tips, while the central one enjoys a generous terrace that hierarchizes it. The south facade was solved completely closed, without windows, to avoid the visual contact with the contiguous land.
The structural and constructive solution includes reinforced concrete, RETAK brick walls to ensure optimal thermal insulation, aluminum carpentry with DVH and mineral cement finish.
