Site size: 1.24 acres
Project size: 2,799 square feet
Location: A wooded coastal region in central Chile famous for its beaches.
Solution: Raised on wood posts over uneven terrain, the rectilinear house features a central corridor that spans its length. Each of the three bedrooms has a private bathroom. Natural light floods the interior through double-glazed, floor-to-ceiling windows. A roof terrace provides additional space to experience the view.
Construction and materials: The house comprises a blackened timber structure. Exterior cladding is a rough natural pine and floor planks are a lighter, smoother pine. Local black stone was sourced for use in the bathroom floor and wall tile.
