REMY's FSY house in buenos aires uses an exemplary balance of noble materials

the ‘FSY house’ is located within a gated community on the outskirts of buenos aires, overlooking a small lagoon and a golf course. REMY has designed the residential project for a couple that privileges the spaces of relaxation and reunion for when their children and grandchildren visit them. at a pedestrian level, the front façade seduces with a set of concrete planes that fuses with the large panels of the gate and main door clad, and a passive parasol system of micro perforated sheets that filters and gives privacy to the openings.

the entrance door is reached after walking on travertine steps that contrasts with the intense foliage of the plants that surround the path. the exterior wall covered in travertine accompanies us to the interior. in front of this, a wall covered from floor to ceiling in lapacho wood, hides the doors to the guest bathroom and spa. the axis of circulation of REMY architects‘ ‘FSY house’ is the large central space in double height.

an exposed concrete wall, with a handmade cast, emerges from the reflection pool and disappears in the sky through the glazed roof. this meeting point of REMY’s house visually links all the rooms. the reflection pool, coated in dark porfido, marks the bottom for the travertine ladder that floats on the water. separated by a system of solid wooden jambs, it becomes the bathing area of the spa, realized in dark tones and exposed concrete walls. this part of the residence creates an atmosphere of relaxation that invites to enjoy the indoor pool. the spa communicates to the outside through a large glazed pivot door, which allows access to the gallery that extends from the side to the back of the house.


big contrast between greenery and the exposed concrete facade

 

 

overlooking the garden, a double living and formal dining room takes shape. all set with minimal furniture of the highest quality. the travertine marble floor extends to the outside, blurring the boundary between the inside and the outside. the kitchen and casual dining develops longitudinally to the ground, and expands in the semi-covered barbecue separated from the main volume of the house.

the quincho, like the rest of the house, was designed as a premier space. it stands out for its wooden ceiling that contrasts strongly with the volume of grill and kitchen in black slate. this area and the infinity pool towards the lagoon, form the space of relaxation for the guests of the house. on the upper floor, to the front we have three bedrooms en suite for guests. each one with different dimensions to accommodate both a couple, or a couple with children. to the back of the building, taking advantage of the best visuals, the main suite and office spreads.


the reflection pool seems to continue to the indoor pool

 

 

the office has a direct access from the main circulation. it develops in an L-shape, with a glazed roof sector that fills the place with light, to ensure good natural lighting throughout the day. in this room, the wooden floor is the negative of the exposed concrete ceiling, which copies the drawing of the wooden planks. the master suite, consists of the sleeping space, dressing room, and bathroom.

each space has been designed to be used independently, without disturbing other sectors. in the last level, accessible only through the elevator, there is an atelier with access to the terrace. the 360º view is the inspiration for the use of the studio.

REMY’s ‘FSY house’ is designed to entertain the family and enjoy in company. working with a finely dosed pallet of materials linking lapacho wood, travertine marble, exposed concrete, and details of black granite and black slate.
