This house is called Casa Codina and was created by A4estudio. It is located in Mendoza, Argentina. This project was made green, optimizing weather conditions. The house is built around a large central courtyard, the main spaces are opened for the larger garden. Public areas oriented to the north, private spaces oriented to the east and service areas - to the west. Everything in the house is made from the standpoint of natural ventilation and air mass moves due to the hot climate in Argentina. The structure houses built of concrete, wood aluminum and different boards. The wood is not used, it is called guatambu. Some walls can change their appearance according to the light.
