Casa Hara del Sol by Nicolás Pinto da Mota


The minimalist residence Casa Haras del Sol by the Argentine Nicolás Pinto da Mota is a modern home actively embraces its context with a innovative design that creates a statement for itself.



Nestled within a gated community on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, is the Casa Haras del Sol is placed in white cube structure, that features strategically placed openings along its facades for the entrances and windows. The house has a highly identifiable archetype: a prism with a square base that limits its scale within its disorganised context.


Casa Haras del Sol is a minimalist residence that features a unique interiority and an abstract structure that relates to an artificial landscape


This project particularly deals with several issues that are caused by the lack of specific limits in these open and continuous spaces. The issues provided a point of departure for the resulting spatial configuration of interior-exterior, thats given by an alternation of small scale patios inside a large cube structure. The resulting spatial configurations bears no big hierarchies and instead presents a large, sinuous space that is defined by its balance of empty and full spaces within the composition.


Furthermore, Bright green grass patches are placed around the residence, accentuating the whiteness of the façades. The Casa Haras del Sol features concrete stripes that lead to the front entrance of the house, and are repeated behind the house to the pool.


The interior space of the Casa Haras del Sol features polished concrete floors that are surrounded with white walls. The kitchen space has a minimalist layout that has rows of glossy white cabinetry and countertops. The entire has ample natural lighting during the day and soft, ambient lighting at night.
