Just over 30 miles outside of Buenos Aires, the Escobar House is a concrete and glass weekend home for a couple and their children. The dwelling, designed by Luciano Kruk, is situated on a golf course surrounded by flat, vast plains. To take advantage of the verdant landscape, the ground-floor living spaces are placed on a platform and elevated above the terrain. Floor-to-ceiling glazing on the rear elevation affords sweeping vistas and also expands the interior outside to a cantilevered poolside terrace. To conceal the inside, a staircase at the front of the home blocks views from the street while a pair of horizontal beams provide added privacy and frame in rectangular views. Although most of the interior is open, varying ceiling heights define rooms and give the interior a cozy atmosphere with its monolithic shell.
