Casa GS / MWS Arquitectura


Casa GS in rural central Argentina was designed by Córdoba-based MWS Arquitectura as a country retreat for a family that currently lives in the city, the 8,000-square-foot residence spreads out over a single story in an L-shape on nearly two and a half acres of land bordered by a sunken gorge with a hidden river. The architects conceived of the minimalist structure as a timeless house, not only as a way to ensure that it endures, but also so that it would not impinge upon the site’s natural landscape.

Built with steel, wood, stone, and of course, concrete, the rectilinear four-bedroom property separates the common spaces from the private quarters in two wings. In addition to a formal living room with a wall of windows that look out onto the terrain, the home features partially enclosed stonewalled patios that are meant to function as outdoor living areas. Broad concrete beams link the different zones, creating a series of courtyards and gardens that connect the home with its site near the Sierras Chicas mountain range — via Curbed
