Casa en Los Molles

Casa en Los Molles

Project Description

The house is located near Los Molles beach town, in the fifth region of Chile, in a field from where you have a main domain of the mountain range view, while the sea appears distant and tangent.

The Project arises from the combination of levels and views. In the first floor, the main topographic levels were redefined as well as the natural paths that existed in the natural terrain to preserve the sensation of moving in the slope. This condition in addition with the size and orientation of the spans constantly frame new horizons of the beach and valley.

The volume of two floors was rotated in relation to the volume of one floor, directing its views towards the bay and the perpendicular view to the ocean from the master bedroom.

The Project material is mainly wood, both structure and cladding. The black color and the measured and dim lighting, work together to dissolve the volume at dusk and thus get lost in the landscape.
