Text description provided by the architects. The home sits on a plot in Algarrobo, in a place with a strong presence of trees, vertical and dense, and a clearing, marking a naturally assigned departure point.

The client is plural, it consists of a family made up of several elements, personalities and needs. They are grandparents, children and grandchildren, so we had to do something big in possibilities but small in size and budget.

The project consists of two volumes that embrace the clearing: a public one, which unifies all common programs of the house and opens onto the outdoor courtyard, and a private one, where each enclosure is separated from the other by introducing terraces and courtyards that shape the privacy of each family element.

The shape of the house is as family relationships and movements: some more distant, others closer, sharing the same center that unites and guides them.
