A no-nonsense concrete beauty with a showstopping pool

Party in the back

There’s nothing unassuming about the front of this concrete beauty from Argentine architect Luciano Kruk, but the real drama happens out back. Kruk designed the house in Belén de Escobar, Argentina, for a young couple who wanted a weekend retreat fit for family living.

The front of the home is wrapped in concrete wrapped in strips of glass that provide just a peek into the home’s ultra-modern interior. The main floor centers around a cavernous living and dining area, which features a double height ceiling, exposed raw concrete, and sweeping golf course views out back.

An all-concrete kitchen is elevated on one side of this main living space while a master bedroom is elevated on the other (with two smaller bedrooms positioned underneath). And per the clients’ request, sliding glass doors open onto a semi-covered terrace, which directly connects to a glimmering pool with three cantilevered sides, a floating mirror designed to reflect the sky.
