This house is located in Chile, Santiago. It is a long house sitting in a gentle slope surrounded by a forest of Eucalyptus trees, and its proximity to highways makes it connected to anywhere.
The clients wanted a “modern but cozy house”, and so the architects came up with a design where materials, organization of rooms and the relationship between inside and outside were considered as important factors to fulfill the clients wish. A central glazed corridor is working as an horizontal axis running through the house, and the programs are distributed along this axis.
Natural textures are to be found both on the inside and outside. Stone clad exterior walls are brought inside the house diluting the boundary between inside and outside, large wall to ceiling windows in the living room opens up integrating the garden terrace and pool inside the house – all are aspects which reinforce the spatial continuity and make the house something special.
