buenos aires-based practice lacroze miguens prati have completed ‘la compartida’ a residence positioned
within a field in tajamares de la pedrera, rocha, uruguay. a minimal rectilinear volume stretches along
a northeast to southwest axis. a low-profile roof spans the continuous interior, with a stepped profile to introduce
natural daylight through a clerestory band. glass walls enclose a central living space, offering views to the meadow
in either direction. the quaint size of the common areas is expanded by visual transparency to the rolling landscape.

the interior opens to a veranda which borders each side of the building, one containing a swimming pool which
parallels the facade. the end wing contains the master bedroom while the opposing half of the home is subdivided to create
two intimate spaces, large enough for individual sleeping quarters.
