NE-AR beget designed the refurbishment of an recent diminutive used summer season residence on the shores of a Patagonian lake in Rio Negro, Argentina.
The architect’s description
The conditions of the present residence lack of an optimum spatial and purposeful distribution that will fulfill the wants and the manners that the summer season residence is being lived and experienced: the recent residence sits a long way a long way from the lake shore neglecting the most privileged views in opposition to the lake and its panorama, while at the same time both neighbor homes at the sides block the vistas in opposition to the lake since their footprints were settled closer to the lake shore.
Moreover, the inside of residence became characterized by a deep unlit dinning/ living residence with restricted relation to the outdoors with a unhappy connection between the kitchen and the non-public and public rooms. At the same time, the diminutive size bedrooms were inefficient to accommodate the precise household progress.
NE-AR determined to incorporate a restful quantity as an extension to the recent residence which grounds closer to the lake shore and oriented in opposition to the becoming panorama vistas, constructing an inside of patio between the recent residence and the extension quantity. Thus the recent extension establishes a transparent division between the non-public and non-personal areas, the used and the recent.
Whereas the recent residence will host two huge bedrooms, the most necessary lavatory within the bottom ground and a secondary bed room within the first stage, all public areas will possible be linearly organized within the extension quantity: start kitchen, eating plight and the lounge residence; all these areas will allotment a huge start wooden terrace deck facing and begin to the lake shore.
The extension will possible be mainly constructed by a strengthened concrete building: a planar roof runs broadly from one neighbor boundary line to the choice and is strengthened by four inverted beams that converge within the becoming load bearing vertical aspect of the house. This column is formed by a pair of bent concrete shear partitions performing in reasonably about a methods.
One Column Dwelling researches on the a few performances the architectural aspect of a column could perhaps make past its structural ability. At the start, it’s a long way a side that marks a central plight by integrating in itself a fireplace, while articulates this design by organizing the reasonably about a purposeful areas around it and orienting space-explain vistas.
At the same time, it shops the fireplace logs and works as an infrastructural tool the put the rain water pipes are embedded within the bent shear partitions while opening up the concrete roof enabling natural zenithal gentle come via.
