Text description provided by the architects. The house is for whoever lives it.
Implanted in a rural landscape near José Ignacio, it arises as a solution for alternative housing in a maritime farm.
It is also intended as a possible start of a line of interventions, retreats that are introduced without attacking what exists.

This wood was chosen to allow it to rust naturally. It is a material that will see time going by without needing maintenance and will be modifying its color and texture, as the native mount.

The house is a retreat for country life, from a comfortable place.
It is related to the outside but it is also a retreat.
It solves a common space of sitting room dining room and kitchen, with two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The spaces through the double orientation respect the tensions between sunlight to the north and the original house to the south. Just as they allow us to be in permanent contact with the landscape.
The challenge was to implant a house that incorporates into the landscape in a subtle way.
