Casa Viguet is a 70 m2 (750 sq ft), intentionally minimalist, single room house located in Pilar - Buenos Aires. The architect, Nicolás Del Campo, placed the house in the center of the much larger, 1,500 m2 (16,100 Sq ft), naturally landscaped site, generating multiple gardens for the user to enjoy. The house becomes a synergy between the monolithic interior and the multi-faceted exterior.

Considering functions, execution, aesthetics and construction time, the architect opted for re-molded concrete elements as the building components for the house. The skin acts as security wall, while screening the natural elements. While interplaying with transparency and opacity, it filters light and generates shade, all changing according with the time of day and season.
