estudio papa uses brick and local techniques to integrate casa TR to buenos aires' urban sprawl

the ‘casa TR’ project lies on the outskirts of pilar in buenos aires and is especially designed to respond to the demands of a young professional couple who has applied for the mortgage loan ‘PRO.CRE.AR‘. as a consequence of dividing the land of former farms into lots, single-family houses have started to be built contributing to the urban sprawl in this area.

argentinian based estudio papa arquitectos‘ latest residential project consists in a unique piece which fully integrates the daily and social life. in addition, it appropriates the plot establishing two green areas: one at the front side which provides the access and acts as an anteroom, and another one at the back side, substantially more private as an extension of the outside hallway and living room.

the inner space of the house provides the residents with a warm welcoming and quality space. richly equipped with a surface of bricks which produces an attractive light and shadow effect; this sieve of bricks not only creates interesting light effects, it will also be the hallmark of this architectural work. the brick as an expressive material with its distinctive texture and color, enhances the ambiance with style and elegance.

estudio papa’s ‘casa TR’ is a contextual, traditional, austere and perfectly integrated architectural work. there is no need for specialized manpower to be executed, turning into a less costly alternative. an opportunity to verify that a contemporary and committed to its location architecture is possible despite of the resource economy.
