Simple and practical design that does away with the unnecessary and focuses firmly on ergonomics is much harder to conjure up and create than it sounds. Nestled in the idyllic town of Pilar in Buenos Aires, Argentina, House DV ventures down this path as it places emphasis on minimal design and an uncomplicated form where functionality precedes form. The small footprint of the house was a conscious choice made by the architects to reduce both construction cost and time even while leaving ample space for a wonderful garden and outdoor living area.
It is the lower level of the house that holds the living area, kitchen, dining space, gallery-style entry and a rejuvenating sauna with the top level housing the bedroom and other private spaces. [Photography:
On the ground floor the window system favors the expansion of the living room and the kitchen into the gallery. The access, toilet, sauna hydro-massage and the service area safeguard this huge ground floor from the street.
