Argentinian studio Adamo-Faiden has created a group of concrete summer season houses called Sociedad de Mar for a patch of forest on the coast of Uruguay .
Sebastián Adamo and Marcelo Faiden recently finished the very first stage of the twenty-dwelling advancement close to José Ignacio – a Uruguay fishing village that has turn out to be a common resort town.
A tall concrete residence with a mono-pitched roof and a bulky balcony stands beside the scheme’s outside pool and adjoining community centre. This single-storey pavilion attributes glazed doors that open onto a shared sun deck and poolside showers, while the residence has its very own private terrace.
Set in a coastal forest just half a mile inland from the Atlantic Ocean, the board-marked concrete buildings that make up Sociedad de Mar have been designed to give a retreat from the popular resorts of the main coastline.
“The group of dwellings seeks to set up an different sort of tourism from the immediate periphery of one particular of the most unique seaside towns,” said Adamo and Faiden, who are based mostly in Buenos Aires.

“A really constrained set of materials, space and organisational variables will at some point outline a new habitant that seeks to coexist with all of individuals who currently cohabited the forest.”
Nineteen further dwellings – some semi-detached and other people single-occupancy – will fill the site in the second stage of the task, which is scheduled for completion in April 2016.
The concrete residences will be evenly spaced in rows across the 60-metre-prolonged plot in an effort to replicate the distribution of trees in the surrounding woodland.
The surface of the cast in-situ concrete walls displays the grain of the wooden formwork. This will give each and every residence a slightly various texture from the next, making buildings that are “usually various and often similar to every other,” in accordance to the architects.
Balconies of the dual-occupancy properties are angled away from every single other, resulting in a splayed floor strategy that separates the rooms inside. In the case of the community pavilion, this two-pronged arrangement partially separates a kitchen from the entrance hall.
Avenues between the blocks will help to keep sight lines with the forest and will be shaded by the chunky balconies.

“3 parallel gaps to the glen diagonally intersect the grouping, supplying an intermediate scale amongst the forest and dwellings,” the architects explained.
Adamo-Faiden also paired raw concrete with all-natural aspects for the conversion of a disused rooftop in Buenos Aires into a glazed home hemmed by planted screens.
