Why have just one tiny dwelling when you can have five? The MD House, a Patagonian retreat designed by Alric Galindez Arquitectos, found one way to combine the advantages of both a large compound and a small, cozy cabin. By uniting a series of five spaces via narrow stairways, bridges and hallways, the unique layout of this Argentinian home sets up a series of abstract prisms that overlook the shores of Gutiérrez Lake. The boxy but not bulky look, accentuated by slimming horizontal lines on the façade, gives the owners plenty of additional spaces to stare at the commanding countryside, and more reasons to look back at their stylish modern dwelling.
