Villa Muro in Rio Tercero

1 Jun 2021

Villa Muro

Design: Karlen + Clemente

Location: Rio Tercero, Córdoba, Argentina

Villa Muro Rio Tercero

The site is located in an urban area in the process of consolidation, whose façade is oriented to the South-West, so the first project decision was to protect the house from the inclemencies of this front and arrange the house in such a way that can capture as much North as possible.

Functionally, the project is essentially a permanent-use dwelling. On the front and open to the street appears the void of the double garage and exterior entrance hall, highlighted by the horizontality of the concrete slab that goes from end to end of the land.

Inside the entrance hall you can see a small central patio that serves as a ball and where you can see the rotation and new perpendicular arrangement of the rest of the house.

In the strip of ground floor and towards the end of the land the rooms are distributed in order from least to greatest privacy, starting with the living room-dining room-kitchen, open staircase, study-social bathroom, laundry room and guest bedroom. The dining room opens onto a gallery that is connected to the front garages. The night areas are arranged upstairs, with bedrooms and a master suite.

Aesthetically we try to achieve pure and clear forms, working in opposition to planes of blind and stone materials with transparent and open areas.

The main feature of the front is its large covered wall that rests on a horizontal glass cut in its lower part and that protects the rest of the house from orientation.

As a result, the house is opaque in its front façade, as a result of the general closure towards the S-O, but it introduces the street by opening the garage as a semi-covered area and supporting the eaves of the hall and exterior pedestrian access. On its north side, the house is completely open to orientation, seeking to highlight its horizontal character.
The materials were chosen for their stony feel and low maintenance, and for this, we opted for exposed concrete formwork in boards, thick trowelled plasters, glass carpentry distributed in aluminum and finishes in local stone cladding.
