Nestled on a quiet little plot in the beautiful Argentine Patagonia brings together unabated views of the forest landscape that surrounds it and the Limay River that becomes a part of its lovely backyard!
But the true beauty of this lovely home in Argentina lies in its ability to connect with the natural scenery outside and the way in which the outdoors become a vibrant and essential part of the relaxing interior.
This meant that the upper floor was incorporated into the hillside and the gradient of the lot turned into an advantage by simply using a step-wise arrangement of various levels. Despite these restrictions a lovely roof deck incorporated within a flat planted roof allows the homeowners to take in the sights and sounds of the serene island!
The gorgeous home now features a blend of the 50s Ranch style rustic touches that give it inviting warmth and modern ergonomics that make the life of its young homeowners an absolute delight.
A home that is surrounded by lush green vegetation and overlooking a meandering river does sound like an enticing prospect that none of us would shy away from. But building a home in the dense Bushland of Victoria as it sits on the edge of a small cliff and overlooks the Yarra River is no easy task at all.
Designed by Marina Vella Arquitectos sustainability and an ability to integrate with the natural backdrop were the key aspects that shaped Casa Chontay. A curved stone wall broken up by the presence of sleek tall windows greets you here even as the outdoor dining area and pergola leave a big impression.
This was built by Aamodt / Plumb Architects in just a matter of 12 months from the initial idea being put in place and while that might not sound all that ‘fast’ it is remarkably quick for a home of its size.
