Mar Azul House By BAK Architects

If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise... for nestled in the forest at the beachside resort of Mar Azul, Buenos Aires, lies BAK Architects' Casa Mar Azul; the environmentally low-impact summer house that's anything but.

Built in 2004, this striking retreat was created to fulfil a brief, the inherent ethic of which was to design a low-budget home of low impact upon the landscape and to consequently require little maintenance. Reclaimed materials and a great consideration towards light, both natural and synthetic, bore Casa Mar Azul; the realisation of architecture at once blending with and yet punctuating its natural environment.
