Linear House by Roberto Benito
Roberto Benito has designed a spectacular modern residence in San Francisco, but not the one in California. This home is located on a plot surrounded by lush landscapes in Cordoba, Argentina.
Its design is simple and linear where all of the main rooms are oriented towards the landscaped areas to the north, allowing their inhabitants to take in the beautiful views. All of the spaces are connected with an open floor plan that spans across just under 3,000 square feet.
The setting is a dense grove, gravel streets, birds migrating from the countryside, neighborhood / oasis, atypical in the city, as if it were elsewhere. Upon entering the field, it appears there, with his camouflaged righteousness, subjected almost unconditionally. As if it had always been there, it seems pertinent, with a respectful height, introverted, concealed …
Hard and simple lines, a rectangular design, but surrendered to its environment. Noble materials and colors seeking continual communion that require no maintenance. With a simple, linear design, all the main rooms face the park to the north and all the services face south. It starts with the living areas and ends in the most private suite.
Openly connected spaces are unified by the clear smooth cement floor across the surface. Especially kept in isolation, it was built with concrete blocks, lightened slabs with polystyrene blocks, suspended ceiling, double glazing and ventilated facade covered with metal plates.
Container of dreams, generator of emotions, informal and personal as the owners imagined it.
