BB House by BAK Architects

  • “Almost” is not the go-to word for describing comprehensiveness, but BB House, designed by BAK Architects achieves its sense of completeness through a feeling of “almost.” Located on the slope of a hill in Mar Azul, Argentina, BB House straddles high and low elevation without committing to either, and instead crosses the terrain to provide a multitude of views of the surrounding forest. The three-bedroom residence, with its concrete and pine composition, comes close to blending seamlessly to nature’s colors but the interruptions of transparent glazing lend brightness and saliency of form to the house. Orthogonal volumes in plan and section just miss one another, enriching a spatial conversation between void and matter.
