Hidden House, Argentina

The Hidden House project is located in Cuesta Blanca, Cordoba. The town is known for being a part of a water reserve called Los Gigantes, which is an ecologically-protected area where the conservation of its special native forest ecosystem is the main focus.

Privacy, respect, and connection with the surrounding environment were the guides that gave the structure for the project. The use of both local natural and human resources was prioritized.

The house is located strategically in the native forest, to avoid the extraction of natural species or making big ground movements. The garage is located near the street, connected to a natural, between-the-trees path which indicates the way to the house.

The project contains both a mix of inhabit and working areas for a couple of craftsmen, with a specific area for textile production. The programs overlap and interconnect, giving space and time to be, work, contemplate and create.

Low maintenance and visual impact materials were used, such as exposed bricks, wooden roofs and concrete. The human creativity was a constant in the construction process, especially in the base of the house and in the different paths, where stone-walls with different construction techniques were used. We understand that local-techniques jobs and the revival of the community and constructive memory are the tool maintain the cultural identity and the relationship with the natural environment.

This project belongs to a series of houses located in suburban areas, immersed in the natural landscapes of Cordoba, with autochthonous vegetal presence, big stones and significant topography. In each one of them, there is a search to reflect the tensions between the natural and the artificial, the impact of the house in the landscape, and the experience of inha biting and connecting with the environment.
