To establish and safeguard. To frame and protect. It’s under these four concepts, like cardinal points, that S HOUSE was conceived and developed.

Located at the north-central coast of Chile and designed to be home to four people, the S House’s core idea (1) is: 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 sitting room and a one space kitchen and dining room.

Through a cross language in the use of the inner and outer spaces, all four core premises that give order to the house meet on the house’s design program. In this way protected outer spaces, framed within the house, together with communicated inner spaces which are naturally included, are contemplated.

The duality suggested in the use of space is also taken into consideration in the use of materials. The main material used for the outer spaces facades which are under the house protection is the 2x1 lining. For the main facades a lining whose geometry, volume and material contribute to a marked contrast is suggested, being this another expression of the foundational four core principles.
