Argentinian architect firm Andres Remy Arquitectos completed the Carrara House in Pilar, Buenos Aires, Argentina project in 2010.
The house sits at the back of an irregular lot and is parallel to one of the streets to open the best orientation and capture the best views. The idea of this journey was to discover the entrance as we followed the exterior stone wall. The rustic and crafted stone defines and separates the entry zones from the living spaces.
A blind and evocative entrance makes a strong impression on the house. The white Carrara marble dominates the interior architecture. The house appears to arise from within the water with the white walls and ceilings. The touches of color are used for small details and decorative objects, dominating the white color and the turquoise of the water.
The water that surrounds the house penetrates it in the form of the mirrored surface of the water, whose novelty results in the interior cascade that emerges from the top floor and falls while painting reflections via a pane of glass. This mirror of water is reproduced outside, blurring the boundaries between one another. Finally, emerging from the hall dispenser of the top floor, the glass cascade drains musically into and through the heart of the ground floor. These elements give the project the distinct mark of Remy–bold, creative, and perhaps provocative, but always unique.
