While the classic brick exterior of this once-thriving warehouse had to be left almost completely untouched the interiors were completely overhauled to accommodate two individual residences with separate entrances – a design that perfectly meets the needs of an extended modern family.
A tranquil retreat set against an idyllic backdrop that brings you close to nature and its ever-changing sights and sounds; this is definitely the image of a beautiful family retreat that most of us dream about.
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!
The secluded pool deck multiple terraces and additional balconies enhance the quality of life here as it is the greenery and fresh ocean breeze outside that truly make this home special.
Space is definitely not an issue here with the two large volumes being connected by a narrow bridge on the top level even as the lower level is left as open as possible. The gorgeous pool area wooden deck and backyard become a visual part of the interior even as the private zones are housed on the top floor. An engaging roof terrace and modern lighting complete a cheerful residence that reinterprets the classic MiMo style in a grand manner.
One of the unique challenges of building this lovely family retreat was the existing building code that prevented the house from being any taller than six feet above grade on the building’s uphill side.
The lowest level contains a guest room along with a laundry room and a smart hall while the first floor holds the living room kitchen and dining space. The top two levels contain the master bedroom bathrooms and additional bedrooms and offer a great view of the city landscape and beyond.
