HS House, City Bell

Estudio Botteri-Connell  

In City Bell, a town located in Buenos Aires Province, stands this residence designed by Sofía Botteri and Patricio Connell's La Plata-based firm. The 275-square-meter building, organized around a central pond, is designed in pursuit of 'immateriality,' playing with the water's reflections on the surfaces of translucent glass and concrete. The enclosure follows an integral system of self-supporting U-shaped glazed profiles – 25 cm by 6 cm – fastened in place by aluminum and PVC elements. The loadbearing partitions of reinforced concrete are left unfaced inside and outside.
