Alric Galindez
Buenos Aires, Argentina

Bitelhaus proposes a new concept of weekend houses, one where versatility, low maintenance, and openness to the exterior take priority.

On the outskirts of Buenos Aires, the house by Alric Galindez is a bold and elegant single linear volume set perpendicularly to the street to get the best orientations and respect the mighty trees preexisting on the plot. The whole facade presents a system of mobile panels that ensures low maintenance and makes the building easy to open out to the garden and close up when not in use.

The linearity facilitates organization of the domestic program, allowing a half-covered space to be the house’s main room and distribution area, and maintaining indoor climate through cross ventilation. Continuous barrel vaults have different curvatures. This creates different environments, regulates the entrance of light and the flow of air, and generates a rhythm through the entire interior.
