Text description provided by the architects. Located on the edge of a cliff side overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this wooden house has an angle view of 360 degrees and strong winds.
The design had two aims. One was to make the experience of the place a contemplation of the the scenery out. The other was to achieve the construction only with local materials and labour.
Sticking out to the ocean looking for spectacular views, the project assumes the challenge to create a warm and calm shelter without wind.
Different terraces for different moments during the day, but all inside the timber volume. Each has its own orientation to dialogue within the environment: the sun and the wind.
The small program is developed on 150 square meters. On the ground floor has free and flexible spaces for living. The second floor houses all bedrooms.
