RB House by Fritz + Fritz Arquitectos
RB House – the contemporary residence designed by Fritz + Fritz Arquitectos. Located in Lujan in the Buenos Aires Province of Argentina, the house is organized by a series of patios that allow the natural ventilation of every room while the inside/outside connection creates different situations of permeability.
From the architects: “The “House RB” is characterized by its conceptual synthesis, formal and material.Being a home for a young couple, the design should be flexible enough to adapt in the future, with the arrival of children, allowing to modify its distribution, and even adding new bedrooms. The use of massive inverted beams located on the roof, allow a “column free” “living room” area and a 60 sqm gallery. As for the material aspect of the house, the concrete ceiling contrasts with travertine floors and white interior walls. The structural solution also generates a gallery of 60 m2 partially covered by a cantilevered slab 4 m x 15 m, devoid of props.
As for the outside, the facade is conceived by the use of large glass panels in relation to the concrete beams of the roof and in contrast to the white brick walls and travertine. Towards the front, a white brick masonry latching system generates a visual screen to the kitchen´s patio, providing both permeability and privacy at the same time.”
