Okay, so this isn't a home- I initially thought it was, but I can imagine this building being put into a home design. This is the stables for polo star Nacho Figueras on the flatlands of La Pampa near General Rodríguez, a city within the capital of Argentina. The project is built mainly of concrete and hardwoods, chosen for beauty and low maintenance. What I find most intriguing is the way the roof melds in to the landscape. The roof is sloped and merges into the landscape, making it easy for the horses to roam between the roof and the ground floor.
