La Costa Forest House

The Forest House makes its home in the coastal region of La Costa, Argentina. Surrounded by native acacia trees and maritime pines, the board-formed concrete residence manages its sloped plot with a series of cascading structures. The three volumes are staggered along the gradient, creating multiple courtyards in between each unit. At the top of the hill are the bedrooms. As you descend through the exposed-concrete interior, a small set of stairs leads to the kitchen and dining area. The lowest point of the house is reserved for the main living area. While west-facing windows provide views of the scenery, a massive covered terrace on the northern end extends the gathering spaces to the outdoors among the towering treescapes.
