Although it is a distinctly modern structure, the H3 House looks perfectly at home in the wooded area of a beautiful natural space located in northern Argentina. This summer house was completed by Luciano Kruk Architects and it illustrates the studio’s penchant for blending geometric shapes, brutalist accents and organic textures. Concrete is used throughout the building, from the external walls imprinted with the texture of wooden planks to the interior furniture which is integrated into concrete surfaces.
Located in the seashore town of Mar Azul near Buenos Aires, H3 House is built on a 210 square meter plot of land near the sea. The house was designed for three sisters with a limited budget whose goal was to get a peaceful summer house in a natural surrounding.
Set in a town on the northern Argentine coast, the H3 House is sophisticated simplicity. The shared summer home is cube-like in shape, with large panes of glass breaking up the otherwise board-set exposed concrete structure. Downstairs is the common area and kitchen, which open up onto the sizable deck, while both the master and second, cabin-like bedroom are located upstairs, and share both a bathroom and a partially covered outdoor area that’s ideal for enjoying the coastal breeze.
