Casa SAB is a house made of concrete slabs developed by PSV Arquitectura in Córdoba. The shape of this house is made elongated with the entire space facing north. The north-south orientation used makes this building protected from the strong western sun, but can still provide each room with optimal sunlight from the north side.

In realizing the design, PSV Arquitectura divides Casa SAB into two main quadrants, consisting of the entrance courtyard and the middle courtyard. The mass design of the building is created from elongated shapes that overlap each other to produce a new, unique shape. Both layers use a concrete slab material that extends from east to west and stone-covered walls from north to south.

On the two main mass strips, there are rooms arranged in two longitudinal lines. These rooms are then connected by a central point in the form of an entrance and a gallery at one end. The division of space in the Casa SAB plan is based on grids which are divided into personal blocks and social blocks. The private block accommodates three bedrooms and an office, while the social block comprises an open plan living area, dining area, and kitchen. The interior of the house consists of elements of wood and stone that deserve to be able to produce an atmosphere of simplicity and simplicity.

With such design, social and personal concepts can be well integrated into the Casa SAB building. The two concepts are analogous to two longitudinal mass strips which are then united through the gallery and cooking area. The rooms facing the courtyard also have partitions that can be opened to connect the indoor and outdoor spaces, creating cross-ventilation, as well as confirming the boundaries of privacy.

According to Gonzalo Viramonte, the architect of PSV, the characteristics of this house can be seen from its sincerity, both in terms of structural, material, and functional expression. The two main concepts raised are divided within clear boundaries but remain unified with each other. The visual relationship between the house and nature can also be seen from the use of natural materials that show interaction with the interior design.
