Catch the Views House has been designed by Chilean studio LAND Arquitectos from an intention of capturing and framing the different existing views at the inside spaces toward the sea and surrounding landscape.
“To achieve this initial objective, plus considering the strong slope of the site, we arranged and stacked the volumes one above the other, directed to the selected views,” explain architects.
The volumes are stacked one above the other, remembering how randomly shoreline rocks are stacked in this coastal landscape. “We used a similar color from the rocks too, a dark grey, for the exterior facades of the house” said the architects.
For the house structure, the architects used a system of prefabricated concrete panels, with a high isolation performance, which also reduces construction time. Material selection criteria were based on the performance, durability and maintenance of the materials in harsh coastal environments.
