Casa Concepción is located in a community over a hill with a spectacular view towards the Bio-Bio river.
The general layout starts with an “L” shaped plan in which 2 closed facades are generated; one towards the community, and other towards the neighbor.
The other two facades opens towards the main garden, views over the gully and river, and to the northern light.
The shed roof structure generates a miniwave coated volume in the second floor over a concrete first floor structure that contains the public areas + the main bedroom. The second floor volume contains the rest of the bedrooms, family room and study, all of them facing north.
