Newman House by Nicolás Pinto da Mota, Victoria Maria Falcon located in Benavidez, Argentina | The Hardt
Newman House by Nicolás Pinto da Mota, Victoria Maria Falcon located in Benavidez, Argentina. The site is located in the outskirts of the city of Buenos Aires, within a private neighborhood, the most defined quality is its consolidated vegetation, this presence and the specific conditions of the lot, prefigured the first approach … create a spatial organization that captures and live with the characteristic features of the landscape proposed by the site.
For this purpose, a system of patios, galleries, and lodges was developed that make up a whole where the exterior interior realization is continuous. This spatial organization without large hierarchies prefigures a large continuous and sinuous space defined by the relation of fillings and voids that occur within this composition, this intermittency identifies the scales of the typical domestic uses.
A new interior reflects a novel landscape in front of the most classic typologies that occupy these plots. The large abstract box prayed, manifests in its operations the various long and short-term relationships that the landscape proposes. On the ground floor, the house is related to the most immediate, through the combination of patios-lodges and on the upper floor two terraces are proposed that seek long-term relationships in nearby arboreal masses. This difference in a landscape that both plants seek, divide the typical uses of the house into day and night plant.
The brick sums up the whole volume and is incorporated naturally into the fabric of houses that the neighborhood possesses. The use of brick, for its geometric clarity of the spaces and their continuity. In this sense, the priority interest is not in what is constructed but in the space that, through this construction, is defined and configured.
