Away from the chaos of Buenos Aires, in one of its residential neighbourhoods, stands this wonderful architectural home of architect Alejandro Sticotti. Casa Olivos is a spacious property that truly embraces the wonderful garden that surrounds the home thanks to the use of floor to ceiling windows that make you feel as if you’re sitting in a garden instead of a home. The design of the building was centered on linking the inside with the outside and making the home transparant, so there is no extravagant luxury, the home is decorated with basic materials such as wood and concrete. I especially love the kitchen with the simple marble workspace, open shelves and no lower cabinets. I can just imagine living here and wander barefoot through the garden and the wonderful open spaces of this home. It must feel a bit like you’re always on vacation and who wouldn’t want that!
