A slender, lush garden is hidden behind the walls of this long concrete house in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, designed by local firm Sommet.
The architectural design studio completed Casa 54 in a gated community in the city with a simple form: a 54-metre-long (177-foot-long) one-storey volume.
It is constructed predominantly from concrete, including the elevated platform, roof and rectangular columns that run around the perimeter.
"In this house, we tried to use long-lasting natural materials that reveal the construction method in the house's aesthetics," Sommet co-founder Sebastián Fernández de Córdova told Dezeen.
"Concrete is the main material of the house," he added. "It is both the structure and the finishes.
"Therefore, we can say that in this house the construction method is revealed in its final image from the beginning, leaving no room for mistakes during the construction process."
A concrete wall runs behind the columns at the front of the property to shield a long and slender interior garden behind.
The form of the columns is also mirrored by a concrete pergola that allows natural light into the green space.
