Casa Clara, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Teresa Sarmiento and Nicolas Tovo are a married couple that work and live in Buenos Aires. They are both architects and they designed this rearkable studio. The plot where the house was built is narrow measuring 7m wide and 15 meters long. The house resides in the city’s downtown and designs had to be crafted to fit in the plot. “Decisions were guided according to the resources that existed,” the owners suggested. “Carpenters and blacksmiths were the main actors in creating a standardised construction, with metal structure and wooden partitions“. The result is impressive.
