This house is constructed in an area of 90.000 m2 in the middle of a great plantation of olive trees. From afar, the impressive mountain range appears. The house was designed as two independent bodies covered by a common roof, creating between them an exterior court protected from the strong climate of the zone. The principal body has two levels, in the first one is located, near the access, an opened space with kitchen, living room and dining room; towards the east is located the principal bedroom.

The other body contains a bedroom, bath and a kitchenet for the guests who visit the house. The house explores the tradicionals corridors and intermediate spaces of the colonial chilean houses.
