Wooden house near the river. Construction with a traditional character

The architecture studio FRAM Arquitectos designs a house close to the Luján River, an area characterized by plains and ponds, with traditional architecture deeply related to the environment in which it is located

The house is located in DiqueLuján, a small town in the province of Buenos Aires, located in the area between the Luján River and the Villanueva Canal. It is a city characterized by plains surrounded by large expanses of water, thanks to which abundant tropical vegetation develops
