House Among Trees




Designed by Martin de Lema and Nicolas F. Deutsch, this contemporary cabin in the woods is set in a seaside resort of Mar Azul outside of Buenos Aires, Argentina.  The surrounding landscape is full of thick pine forest, dunes and virgin beaches.  The local construction code demands free space at both sides and limits the extraction of trees, hence the phrase "house among trees".  The owners wanted to preserve the natural conditions of the plot of land and profit as much as possible from the natural qualities.




The house is comprised of 2 levels.  The bottom serving as a plinth to private use organizing the rooms and defining a horizontal plane.  The upper level pavilion includes the social program with the living, dining room, grill and terrace, organized in a central area of use, with sides of circulation and services.
