San Esteban house is a family home designed by Santiago-based Bedodo Studio (architect David Bedodo). The house has an area of 140 square meters and each room is connected to an open terrace.

Description by Bedodo Studio: San Esteban is a little rural town located in the Andes pre-mountains of the V region of Chile, just one and a half hours north from Santiago. The house is set on a very steep ground that provides spectacular views of the cordillera de los Andes.

Every room directly relates to the scenery through a glazed façade that moves in and out allowing inner spaces to communicate with light patios and semi outdoor terraces all sheltered by the roof eaves. The roof or cover emerges from natural ground level, with a slope that generates higher interior spaces against the perimeter glass façade. In order to keep the horizontal relation, all the interior walls and volumes maintain a single height, while the roof or cover is sustained by metal pillars that stretch to different heights in relation to the roof slope.

Materials applied as purely as possible, plain concrete for walls and floors, pinewood boards for the façade without varnish nor painting and for the outdoor terraces raw paint less pinewood boards. As for the metals, black color was chosen so as to harmonize the texture and looks of both steel and aluminum used in the glazed walls. In this philosophy the house subtly touches the terrain topography and its cover fulfills the role of completing the surface leveled by the house setting, minimizing the house impact on its surroundings, scenery and nature. Photographs: Enrique Soza Valenzuela
