Text description provided by the architects. Located in the upper zone of Puertecillo, a small beach located in the central zone of Chile, in the district of Navidad; mix between field and sea that stands out for being the hidden paradise of surfers where you can be enjoying the sea, forests and nature.
The house is located on a very steep terrain with a north-west orientation. The strategy was to generate different terraces to take advantage of the morphology of the place, all the enclosures are oriented with a view to the bank; that flows into the sea.
It is made almost entirely of wood, due to the benefits of the material exposed to the coastal climate, a 1.4 ”board coating of dry pine in chamber was used for its better finish and durability over time, installed as a system of ventilated facade. We apply a black tint to the entire exterior, so the house is lost in the landscape, concealing itself among the vegetation.
In a volume with two large public and private areas, it is distributed on three levels: The first level with access to living / dining room and bedrooms, lower level with the cellars and covered terraces that protect from the sun and wind in the summer; These are directly related to the patio and the third level is the roof of the house, with a habitable terrace, this allows to rescue all the panoramic views of the place; above all the horizon, the view of the valley and the ravine towards the sea.
