Project Description

From the Architects:

484 INCREMENTAL HOUSES

Arauco Forest Company asked us to develop a plan to support their employees and contractors so they could have access to home ownership, in the context of Chilean housing policies. This allowed us to work for the first time with the high end of housing policy. Given the greater availability of resources, instead of taking one of our cheaper housing units and delivering it more finished, we applied again the same principle of incrementality, but with an initial and final growth scenario of higher standard: from 57 m² (initial area of each unit), they can grow up to 85 m².
