This forest house is located in Mar Azul, Argentina. It was built by BAK Architects on a site full of challenges. The owners wanted it to be away from the sea and the populated areas so it can serve as a private, intimate and remote refuge. At the same time, they wanted to be in contact with nature and the landscape. To these requests the architects responded with a single level design for a structure that has a concrete shell and vast openings. It sits on a flat section of the site and it offers uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape.
The owners of this house approached Bestor Architecture with the desire to ultimately be able to enjoy a private getaway outside of the city, a place where they could become closer to nature and to find the balance between modern design and organic simplicity. Their wishes came true. It’s cozy and humble but this charming retreat is designed to make the most of its location and to transform the views of the forest into a source of freshness of color for the interior decor. This is a retreat designed by Lang Architecture in Kerhonkson, 100 miles from New York.
In the case of the Caterpillar House by Feldman Architecture, the clients had a series of specific requests. they wanted the house to be closely connected to its surroundings and to have a modern ranch feel while also being environmentally-friendly and sustainable. The architects managed to fulfill these requests by creating a contemporary version of a ranch, with full-height glass walls and clerestory windows.
