Ribbon House by G2 Estudio

January 31st, 2011



This house is a fortress. It was designed by G2 Estudio for two families from Tahiti- French Polynesia. The house was intended as a holiday house and is located in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentinean Patagonia. Space seems to not be an issue inside—the interior is open between the floorings making it feel vast.

There is a very warming juxtaposition of materials in use, which just happens to be my favorite combination: wood and concrete. The interior images after the jump show just how stunning this combination can be. You can bet my future house will utilize both wood and concrete to the teeth.

    Wow this is amazing. Takes me back to Architecture School, and all the models we had to make. I can see making this out of the poster board and scale wood pieces. Sometimes I think I liked making the models more than anything else.

    Kitty does not approve. Kitty says too much unprotected open space as per picture five (5) from top. Kitty will drink and fall. Kitty no like fall.

    yeah, I noticed the lack of railing in picture 5. i would think that would be a problem, especially with all those interesting angles having a possible disorienting effect. i could see someone new to the place walking out onto thin air rather than down the stairs.
