In collaboration with Diego Arraigada Arquitecto, L.A. based architects Johnston Marklee & Associates completed a new private dwelling with another signature of monolithic appearance of Johnston Marklee in Rosariom Argentina.

'Designed for an ecologically rich site on the Argentine plains near Rosario, this 3,000 square foot house optimizes a compact dwelling space by maximizing the experience of the surrounding views and prioritizing environmental performance. The taurus shape creates expansive spaces by layering volume and view within and throughout the house. The siting, orientation and form of the house minimize dependence on mechanical systems, making use of natural light, air flow, and alternative energy systems to create a dynamic living experience directly engaged with the local site conditions.'
