D House – Two Storey House Situated at the Top of a Cliff

D House - Two Storey House Situated at the Top of a Cliff (1)

Located on the coast of Chile, D House was designed by Panorama Arquitectos in collaboration with WMR Arquitectos. This house in Matanzas is situated at the top of a cliff, 65 mts. approximately above sea level.

From the architect: A two storey house, for a couple and their son, is structured within a square volume of 9 by 9mts. Inside intersects another volume at a higher level, which is rotated 45 degrees in relation to the floor plan, allowing double heights and the arrangement of spaces in the first floor.

Then, to the side and facing north, the terrace partly enclosed, allowing the users to go outside during days of extreme wind. Finally, in the diagonal volume or second floor, the room and the bathroom.
