From the architect. Infiniski designs and builds eco-friendly houses and buildings based on the use of recycled, reused and non polluting materials and the integration of alternative and renewable energy. The Infiniski projects are designed by James&Mau - Architects and designers,  Jaime Gaztelu and Mauricio Galeano, founders and partners of Infiniski. James & Mau offer Innovative and contemporary designs based on bioclimatic and modular architecture.  Infiniski is not only green, it is cheaper and faster … it tries to think the values of architecture and construction differently; a contribution to the needs of our changing environment.

This house rocks with both facades. Want to live in there/around it.

Lucas · December 12, 2009

I'm tired of seeing this type of "cool"(?) architecture. In the end, behind a fancy name and a not-so-convincing "manifesto" there is only a really ugly house. A real shame considering the apparently amazing characteristics of the site.

what does it suppose to manifest?

I.P Freely · November 17, 2009

The interior looks like a trailor house with mod furniture.

anavic · November 17, 2009

Both photos of both facades are from the same point of view, I don't understand it either...

mario bijou · November 17, 2009

Il manque une vue, celle de la douche !

what's the point of the sheep?

andy duncan · May 30, 2013 06:59 PM

Sheep=Eco lawn mower!

i don't get it, why is the house shown with two facades? no mention in the article, confusing.

Dan · November 17, 2009 02:49 PM

The two facades are two separate elevations. You can see this in the internal central staircase image. In response to 'g dehis' - it is also constructed from used shipping containers which would certainly reduce it's embodied energy.

g dehls · November 17, 2009

what makes the this house/cottage eco-friendly ? all that I can see is some used pallets and a rainwater storage container on the roof there seems to be no insulation so heating it wouldn't be very efficient.

pappoqula · November 17, 2009 07:55 AM

no need in Chile, not every house is in nothern hemisphere.

J. F. · November 17, 2009

chilean architecture is nice and well done but thats all, it is tendentious and with a big lack of character, this kind of houses seem to come more from a norweigian fiord instead from the place they are build.

M · November 17, 2009

Nice woman on the pics :)
