The villa is in fact a tailor-made surfer’s holiday home, with a layout and materialisation vaguely referring to chilean farmhouses. The small floorpan of 50 m2 has been laid out in six modules: four bedrooms, one bathroom and one kitchen module. Each bedroom has an independent access to a generous roofed terrace, conceived as a shared common space; as a living room with a magnificent view of the sea. The post-and-beam wooden construction with eucalyptus screens and straw bale infill walls and clay-plaster creates an excellent indoor climate in this humid region.
