JD House by BAK Arquitectos

The team at BAK Arquitectos have completed another South American concrete stunner.  The JD House by BAK Arquitectos is located in Mar Azul, Argentina, not far from another BAK-designed concrete home we featured earlier this year.  These concrete designs are a perfect fit for the coastal Mar Azul forest, as the soft, sandy, pine-needled landscape makes for a subtle contrast to the stone-colored concrete.  Inside, the home is spacious, airy and angular, with a tiered layout that rises to create varied living spaces.  Like BAK’s other homes, the JD House was constructed to preserve the nature around it.  The trees on this home’s plot remain intact, several of which extend directly through the structure of the JD House.  The result is an immersion into Mar Azur’s stunning nature that would be far out of reach for a traditionally designed and constructed home.  [bak arquitectos via contemporist]
