Concrete Painting Studio Built on a Rocky Hill

Concrete Painting Studio Built on a Rocky Hill

This concrete painting studio was designed by Felipe Assadi and Francisca Pulido as an extension of a house. The studio is located in Los Vilos, Chile.

Project description: The painter’s studio has been erected to one side of a house in Bahía Azul. A small space, it appears to be a prolongation of the terrain when seen from the entrance, but from the slope it stands out as a piece embedded in the hillside.

The space, ultimately conceived as the prolongation of its own window frame, mediates between the sea and an interior garden located at the entrance. Reached by a narrow staircase, excavated out of the rock, it leaves the user in complete isolation.

It is a sort of retreat from the surrounding constructions, basically just a wall with indirect sunlight entering from above to paint by. The rigidity and horizontality of the design reinforce the diagonal lines of the main house.
