From the architect. The project is situated in Matanzas - Chile, at the top of a cliff, 65 mts. approximately above sea level.

This house, for a couple and their son, is structured in a square volume of 9 by 9mts. Inside intersects another volume at a higher level, which is rotated 45 degrees in relation to the plan, allowing double heights and the organization of space in the first floor.

The program is ordered in a simple way, a single space for the living room, dinning room and kitchen and on the back a sleeping area and the stairs to the second floor. Then, to the side and facing north the terrace, partly enclosed, allowing the users to be outside the days of extreme wind. Finally, in the diagonal volume, the room and toilet.

Three defined sectors as the result of the orientation to the panoramic views of the landscape, the isle, the beach and the forest in front of the ocean.
