Casa Pece: A Testament to Minimalist Architecture in Tandil
Nestled in the ancient Tandilia mountain range of Tandil, Argentina, Casa Pece is a testament to minimalist design and harmonious living. Designed by the renowned guadagna | arquitectos in 2022, this single-story house offers an extraordinary escape from urban activity, facilitating a more relaxed lifestyle connected to the breathtaking landscape.
The property’s linear layout, situated on a spacious corner lot within a gated community, is oriented to capture the best views of the mountains, while also enhancing the virtues of all orientations. Casa Pece is a masterful blend of austere materialization and comfort, designed to withstand the harsh Tandil winter and the strong summer suns, making it a haven for all seasons.
About Casa Pece
Materiality and Construction
In line with the request for austerity, we employed a traditional mixed construction system for Casa PECE. This system includes a modular concrete structure and plastered hollow ceramic bricks. The black anodized aluminum frames harmonize with the light gray tone of the plastic plaster, creating a cohesive aesthetic.
Achieving Balance: The Final Design
The fundamental premise of Casa PECE’s design was to appreciate nature and achieve a state of balance between the built environment, the swimming pool, and the natural green area. This balance provides a sense of harmony, making Casa PECE a true masterpiece of architecture and interior design.
