Could you cozy up in a place like this or does it go too far? JD House is a contemporary wooden house designed by BAK Architects. The house is situated in the woods in March Azul, in the Argentine province of Buenos Aires. This house also has an open concept with large wide windows that let natural light penetrate the interiors. In addition, the entire house is mostly made of the wood making it a perfect eco-friendly living. The slope was used to create a ultra lighted basement, reducing the volume of the built area and retaining a remarkable pine, old and very robust that embraced one of the facades.
For this property, the goal was to minimize damage to the landscape.
The exterior follows the cycles of the forest with little human intervention.
The towering pine trees provide privacy to the house and protect the coast from strong winds, but also provide an intense shade that reduces the amount of natural light.
