Luciano Kruk’s L4 House Is A Pine-Protected Brutalist Seaside Dwelling

Dec 6, 2019

Category: Living

The era of brutalist architecture has been making a dramatic return in recent years. With more and more architects adopting the style and adapting it to modern standards, the artistic allure of an all-concrete dwelling has, for lack of a better term, become more visceral, raw, and organic than ever before. Now Luciano Kruk has decided to channel these properties for his latest project, the L4 House.

Conceptualized as a vacation estate for Kruk and his family, the L4 House presides over the serene, pine-accented shore of Costa Esmeralda, a small area just four hours from Buenos Aires. Large, all-encompassing windows provide panoramic views of the area’s forestal environment, while angular concrete columns and channels bring visual structure to the home’s exterior. To keep social, living, and cooking areas within a communal distance from one another, the dwelling has been situated in a single-floor orientation, emphasizing a private quadrangular floorplan. Each of the space’s four bedrooms boasts its own shower and bathing area, while modern furniture, peripherals, and elements transport inhabitants from an era of brutalist influence into that of purposeful, comfortable design. Head to the roof of the home, and you’ll be treated to an even greater surprise — a relaxing pool area that provides stunning views of the surrounding countryside, and a fleeting glimpse of Esmeralda’s wave-strewn shore.
