A Simple Modern House in Uruguay, Coastal Edition

May 29, 2014

Argentinian architect Martin Gomez Arquitectos, who specializes in beach houses in Uruguay and Argentina, is “obsessed with contextualizing his works within the landscape,” he says. This simple, single-story coastal house, set on a grassy knoll overlooking the sea in Punta del Este, gets it just right. See more at Estudio Martin Gomez Arquitectos.
