This project is conceived as the refurbishment of a 1959 family house located in a traditional borough of this commune. The house was in good conditions and in its original state.
The Lakeview house is located in the Los Ríos Region, Chile, on land that faces the north shore of Lake Calafquén. The property is predominantly on a steep slope that runs into the lake. The Lakeview house volume is built with two sloping roofs that overlap; a higher roof for the bedrooms and common areas towards the lake
Casa La Roja is a small house, consisting of 87m2 distributed on two floors. Its shape arises from a solid cube and the subtraction of part of its mass, to generate a double height entrance terrace and the roof slopes. The house is located in a mountain area of a sparsely urbanized context that seems rural. It is a low-density area, with plots around 5,000 m2; therefore the houses are isolated, with no visual contact between them.
This project is a reinforced concrete house composed of a succession of longitudinal and transverse beams that work together to generate a single structural piece. As always, we prefer to inhabit a structure instead of structuring a room. In this way, we consider the technical feasibility of a project as its actual design resolution; feasibility is not separate from project design.
