The stunning RM House in Mar de Ajó is 230 miles drive from Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires. It was designed as a summer and weekend retreat from all the hustle and bustle of daily city life.  Featuring stunning views on both sides, the home stands on a system of poles that merge on a single concrete foundation causing minimal impact on the ground.

Made from standard materials like corrugated metal and local wood, its glazed facades allow plenty of sunshine in as well as a cool, crossed ventilation marine breeze. Topped by an A-line roof, it features an open, sunny terrace on the seaside, while it’s sheltered from northern winds and storms on the other side.

A seaside retreat with two completely different landscapes, the RM House offers inhabitants a beautiful place to relax in the Pampas.
