Project Description

Detached house, for a marriage, two children and services. Public areas on the first floor and private spaces in the second. In this higher volume, parents and children are parted; the first to de east and the children to the west. On the second floor, the ends of each volume has the most private places to finish in the center with the most common areas (father desk and TV/multimedia room for children); creating a large central volume of double height; which contain the relations and nexus (both foot how sight) between this double duality (private / public and children / parents).

The material
Concrete, steel and native woods. A dialogue between the weight and mass of Concrete with the lightness and warmth of the wood. The base structure on the first and second floors is concrete, delivering a "sturdy table" to line the outside with a steel and wood. Both on the second floor as the double volume center height, native wood used dried and processed internally. Canelo was used in walls and ceilings, and Tineo or Coihue in floors.

Glass bricks.
This element was used to create the east wall of the kitchen, like a kaleidoscope filtering out the morning light in the kitchen; and distorter the lighting that receive bathrooms, and in the function how a screen to separate access and dining. It is a playful element that gives movement and illuminates at the same time that separate them.

Functional and spatial axes
The Corridor. Inhabiting the maximum length.
The second floor hallway is transformed into a large corridor that ends in two terraces; the small west terrace flying over the main entrance, and the large east terrace. This corridor, which runs the maximum internal length of the house (24 meters + terraces) in addition to the semi-interiors latticework of the terraces, is accompanied by a large horizontal south window, communicating the neighboring fields inside the house
