House at Punta Chilen by DRN, Site Offers an Open View

December 12, 2013 By: archinhome Category: contemporary house design

Description of House at Punta Chilen :
Located on the tip of a peninsula on the island of Chiloe, the site offers an open view of the horizon 360ยบ around it and distant views over the Andes mountains where at least 8 volcanos can be seen (some of them still active). A rhythmic repetition of columns on the first floor carry the structure to the perimeter and generates changing shadows on the interiors. The oblique shape of the corten steel roof on the second floor defines an irregular perimeter opposed to the flat line of the horizon, creating a contained living space to inhabit during the rainy days of Chiloe. Please visit DRN site for further detail about this house.
