house in tajamares

buenos aires-based practice lacroze miguens prati have completed 'la compartida' a residence positioned
within a field in tajamares de la pedrera, rocha, uruguay. a minimal rectilinear volume stretches along 
a northeast to southwest axis. a low-profile roof spans the continuous interior, with a stepped profile to introduce
natural daylight through a clerestory band. glass walls enclose a central living space, offering views to the meadow 
in either direction. the quaint size of the common areas is expanded by visual transparency to the rolling landscape.
