View House, Argentina

From the images, one might think that the View House is set adrift in its own sprawling private wilderness, a piece of sculptural beauty set far from civilisation.
In fact, the plot of land is part of a large development, the Kentucky Club de Campo, a golf-centric suburb on the outskirts of Rosario, Argentina. Here, generous building plots have been doled out to aspiring suburbanites, with the nearby links intended as bait.
The View House is different. For a start, it dispenses with any notion of conventional form. Instead, the total absence of pitched roofs and vernacular cues has resulted in a sculptural concrete form that appears to grow out of the flat landscape.
