Momento completes House 2/3 in Córdoba, Argentina

Córdoba-based architecture office Momento has completed a private villa in Córdoba, Argentina

Named Casa 2/3 (or House 2/3), the house is the second of a series of three houses located on the same block in Villa San Nicolás, a quiet municipality on the outskirts of the City of Córdoba, Argentina.

It is implanted in a rectangular lot of 10 meters wide by 30 meters deep with very strong natural and topographic characteristics, and it is these that give the first ideas of design and insertion.

The irregular topography of the lot generates 2 zones: The lower part towards the front and a high part towards the back. The unevenness between these is steep and approximately 5 meters.

Randomly distributed throughout the lot, there are several medium-sized trees with leafy crowns; one of them grows inside a large stone located at the bottom of the lot and it is incredible. 

"Our intention is to preserve them and make them part of the architecture, complementing the spaces," said the office. 

The house is a single rectangular volume that breaks and dislodges, avoiding the treetops and accommodating itself in the empty spaces of the land.

Casa 2/3 is supported in the upper part of the lot which generates a space for the garage below it.

The social area of the house is at the back of the lot and in relation to nature. Both the kitchen and the living room have their own patios, expansions with natural characteristics and particular situations.

The type of real estate project determined that the square meters to be built were limited, the challenge was to generate spaces with excellent characteristics and features that provide a good quality of life. This is where the search was focused, on taking advantage of the existing vegetation in the lot to give life and quality to the architecture.
