House Among Trees by Martín Fernández de Lema & Nicolás F. Moreno Deutsch

The House Among Trees by architects Martín Fernández de Lema & Nicolás F. Moreno Deutsch is a beautiful example of structure and nature living in harmony. The house, in Mar Azul, a seaside resort near Villa Gesell and 400 km from Buenos Aires, is built around the local tress instead of over them. The municipality requires that there be free space on all sides of the building and limits the removal of vegetation. The clients were determined to save all of the trees on the plot, and in fact, use them to the house’s advantage, lowering cooling costs by being naturally shaded.
