Built upon a modest 688 square foot plot of land in the woodsy terrain of coastal Buenos Aires, the H3 house, designed by Argentinian architecture firm Luciano Kruk, was conceived as a summer home for three sisters and each of their families. It’s located in Mar Azul, literally translating to “blue sea,” so it’s obvious why the investment was made in the area.
H3 hosts two social areas with one being a bit more private, along with a master bedroom and a smaller “cabin-like” one that share a Jack and Jill bathroom. What’s cool about the master bedroom is that the room opens upward into an indoor/outdoor area providing some outdoor privacy for the lucky tenant. The house itself is built entirely from exposed concrete, making construction and future maintenance easier than most, and the whole design is established as a concrete block. The kitchen can be found on the ground floor along with the living and dining rooms that are visible through the floor-to-ceiling windows. And since it’s located underneath a dense canopy of trees, keeping this minimalist home cool is simply a matter of allowing the sea air to flow freely through the structure.
