Name: 4 Dwellings With Courtyard
Designer: SMF Arquitectos
Location: Buenos Aires Province, Argentina
4 Dwellings With Courtyard is a minimalist house located in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, designed by SMF Arquitectos. In a context of uniform heights and morphologies, mainly with a ground floor and an upper floor, the architects proposed the construction of four dwellings with their own courtyards grouped around a common open space that takes the height of the adjoining building.
Its volume is defined in terms of contemporary architecture, as a single volume with a predominantly glazed front upstairs, and on the ground we propose a semi transparent “base” that functions as sieve of the main entrance and the garage, allowing a glimpse of the “green” interior from the street. The idea of courtyard with garden rescues the tradition of unifying tradition sunny space with optimal orientation, becoming the outdoor heart of the project.
