Designed by Mexico City-based architecture studio BP Arquitectura, the mq2 House in Argentina is built to stand out from the local terrain. Located on the side of a valley, the uneven plot means that the house is built from two large blocks sitting atop one another and creating large overhangs around the structure. The building is constructed mostly from exposed concrete, giving the house a Brutalist aesthetic.

The lower of the two boxes features social spaces including the kitchen, living room and gallery room, while the upstairs box houses private spaces. The building is then completed with two large terraces, with one offering views across the mountainous surroundings and another acting as a private cloister courtyard. Take a look around the mq2 House in the gallery above.
