an oasis in buenos aires : the sticotti house

I just adore this wood and iron house by furniture designer/architect Alejandro Sticotti in Buenos Aires. He describes it as "a house floating in the garden", which I love. Every room in the building overlooks the garden. This house is a perfect example of when lines between interior and exterior are blurred. It's also an example of warm modernist design that is my favourite type of architecture. They've used both local and recycled materials to build. So the house pays respects to Argentina despite the stark architectural contrast to the primarily ornate European baroque and tudor of the city. Love. love. love this.
