Argentinian architect Luciano Kruk has designed a concrete holiday home among the pine trees of a forest near Buenos Aires.

The small but well-spaced summer house is situated in the small town of Mar Azul. It’s comprised of one large social area, one slightly more secluded social area, a master bedroom, a smaller cabin-like bedroom and a bathroom. Each room was built using exposed concrete, and the interior decoration was designed around it.

Kruk and his Buenos Aires-based studio designed the home, named “Casa H3,” as a holiday home for three sisters and their respective families. The concrete walls of the house are imprinted with the outline and texture of the pine planks, a technique used by Kruk to create a rugged appearance and to reduce maintenance, but also to draw a connection between the house and its calming woodland environment. Check out the house in the pictures above.
