The “Ribbon House” takes inspiration from the juxtaposition of volumes in Argentinean Patagonia, each containing different functions, on one hand the social life and in the others the private life. This building integrated space for leisure and recreation, two master-rooms, two bedrooms for the children, and all the necessary equipment to a holiday house in 396 sqm project area.
To get the artistic expression and for reach the limits of the materials, the work was performed with two different systems that can reflect the idea of the project. The support would be reinforced concrete, bringing it to their fullest potential in horizontal planes, vertical and lead off, for a seismically active area such as San Carlos de Bariloche, along with the stone as a heavy and rustic material in dialogue with the nearly mountains.
The sustained would be of steel-frame for the outer shells, partitions, panels, sun visors, which would be clad in wood from the area taking advantage of its warmth and lightness. For the roof panels and folded it, was used asphalt slate black color, creating color and texture contrasts. More information please visit the architects official website.
