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.
Designed by Remy Architects the spacious home occupies and is spread across three gorgeous levels that are interconnected with a series of walkways and cleverly placed corridors.
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 use of dark-toned wooden surfaces and finishes also adds to the tropical style of the home that is accentuated by the design of the ceiling and the lovely shutters. With summers getting really hot on this beautiful Aussie island the ‘completely open’ design allows for natural cooling with the ocean breeze flowing through the interior.
Both the living area and the bedroom of the residence open up towards the tranquil curated and modern courtyard that is complete with a refreshing pool. Spread across two different levels a neutral color scheme concrete floors and a healthy splattering of marble backdrops and countertops ensure that there is no shortage of lavishness in the air!
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.
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.
