PROJECT
CASA CASCO LA LOMA


This residence is located in the vast landscape one of the most fertile areas of the argentinian humid pampa. A row of willows serves as an orientation axis, along which four separate buildings emerge: the main house, the guest house, the service residence and a water tower with attached services. The proposed scheme is of two main pieces hollowed out by exterior expansions, in which the separation and displacement between them generates the principal social space. The design of the houses follows the traditional building methods of the area, in tune with extreme weather variations between seasons, with dry, hot summers and cold, rainy winters. Local materials and labor was used in the construction of the buildings, which serve as a contemporary metaphor of the traditional architecture and ways of living in the pampa.
