Saenz house. La Plata, Province of Bs.As, Argentina (2012-) ,

Sáenz House.

The Sáenz house retakes an investigation done years ago with the realization of two buildings of equipment located in the same neighbourhood. The project supposes a new attempt to construct architecture and landscape simultaneously, understanding that in the extreme artificiality of these environments exists a fertile material in where to essay a new notion of nature. It´s owners -an elderly couple with no children- understood that an opened organisation with no hierarchies would allow them to make migrations inside the house, selecting the different stays depending exclusively on the moment of the day or the time of the year. The four meter constant width is seen undrawn by the presence of big glassed windows that end up extending the house to the limits of the plot, generating a singular feeling of contention and expansion that stimulates the perception of each one of the gardens. Both the constructive systems that define its surrounding as for the tree species that protect it, where picked following economy and comfort criteria that intensify the commitment established with a dry constructive system.
