This house is designed by the G2 Estudio and took the location in San Carlos de Bariloche, Rio Negro, and Argentinean Patagonia. Which covers an area for about 396 square meters, it was done by the architect as the living house designer in 2008-2010. For more information about this nice living space just check the paragraph below!
The initial ideas which come from the architect is the juxtaposition of the house volumes, which each on it is containing the different functions, in the other hand, the social life and in the others the private life. The mixing of the geometry and the space is occurs when the volumes is meeting in one each other. It is generate the dynamic routes between the activity and the rest areas inside the house, which is getting in the tension with their experiment in the transition between being supported on the rock to rise into the sky to searching the perfect visuals. In this way, it can appreciate an up-down experience link. The morphology and the materials which the living space used are thought to achieved which the strong is becomes in fragile, the solid in ethereal, the supported in support, the dynamic in static and the vice versa, so the living space is a search between the balance, juxtaposition, ribbon, viewing-point, vital tour and hug.
For information about the element of the house, the work is performed with the two different systems which the system itself able to reflect the idea of the project, it is to achieve to get the artistic expression and for reach the limits of the materials. The reinforced concrete will be the support of this living space project. This reinforced concrete is bringing it to their fullest potential in the horizontal planes, vertical and leads off. It is achieved for a seismically active area such as San Carlos de Bariloche, along with the stone as a heavy and the rustic materials in the dialogue with the nearly mountains. The sustained which the house used will be of the steel frame for the outer shells, partitions, panels and the sun visors which will be a clad in wood from the area taking advantage of its warmth and lightness. The black color asphalt slate is used as the roof panels and to fold the house sustain. It is creating the color and the texture contrasts. The interpenetration of the compositional direction volumes is resulting the interior of this living space. It is respecting converges and materiality which making a dramatic balance between the expression of forms, texture and the visuals.
The Ribbon House is arguing that every expression of the architecture should be unique and unrepeatable as the users. It because the Ribbon House which designed by the G2 Estudio is closing a small cycle of the evolution in the search for housing types, and launches into new spaces for these architectural exploration.
