flexible living zone forms around an open atrium

 

Architecture firm Equipo de Arquitectura explores efficient resource utilization and a strong connection with nature in its latest project, a small house in San Bernardino, Paraguay. Embracing the Miesian principle of ‘fast nicht’ (almost nothing), the design focuses on simplicity and economy of means. Divided into two sectors, the house features a large, open social space with glass openings and wooden panels, creating a flexible reception gallery.

longitudinal skylight provides a glimpse of the sky

 

Separated by an interior garden, the private sector houses the kitchen and bedroom, constructed with brick masonry. The garden serves as a transitional pause, marked by a natural stone path, and a longitudinal skylight bathes the space in natural light while providing a glimpse of the sky. The scale of the project, the proportion of the elements, and the materials used reflect the studio‘s aim to build the synthesis of a reflective process on the administration of resources and the maximization of results.
