Casa L4 by Luciano Kruk & Ekaterina Künzel
Casa L4 is a stunning residence in Costa Esmerelda, Argentina, featuring a rooftop pool with sprawling ocean views. The house was designed by local architect Luciano Kruk and his partner Ekaterina Künzel.
“After building several houses in Costa Esmeralda, and captivated as we were by the place, my girlfriend Ekaterina and I set up to project one for ourselves there. We wanted a house where we could stay for short periods of time, suitable for having friends over and, eventually, for rental.
Costa Esmeralda is located thirteen kilometers north off the city of Pinamar and four hours away from Buenos Aires. Barrio Marítimo II, where the plot of land is located, is set parallel to the sea. A screen of pines lies between the neighborhood and the seacoast, thus respecting the 200 meter setback required by provincial regulations.
Embraced by the pines’ canopies, a peaceful contemplation space unfolds on the rooftop. Due to the transparency of the box containing the stairs, views in all directions can be experienced. Covered by a wooden deck and furnished by a shower area and two adjacent swimming pools, this viewing space is enriched by the sight of the sea.”
