The modern household takes quite a “twist” in Argentina with the FyF Residence, located in the outskirts of Rosario, around 300 kilometers north of Buenos Aires. Named after its owners Fernando and Florencia Garcia, FyF is described as a “spatial and physical attempt to challenge the planar stability and flat homogeneity of the Pampas landscape in a domestic setting.”
ArchDaily describes the one-of-a-kind home, created by the P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S architectural firm:
The project was conceived as a monolithic solid, a monochromatic form punctuated only by subtle inflections that establish a complex physical relationship among the different spaces while maintaining a sense of identity and privacy between them.
The residence is organized into a basic disposition of public and private spaces connected by a central corridor and articulated by a small light well. The internal atmosphere of the house offers a contrasting effect between calmness and fluidity. While all rooms are discretely separated, they are also connected by means of strategic openings located right at the transitions, hence adding to the main areas of the house a sense of controlled endlessness.
