Chalet C7 by Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez locted in Chilean Andes

Chalet C7 by Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez located in Chilean Andes| The Hardt

 

Chalet C7 by Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez located in Chilean Andes. The hotel sits an altitude of 9,500-feet in the Chilean Andes on the edge of the Inga Lagoon. Special consideration was taken not to spoil the view over the lake and surrounding mountains by partially inserting the 3,175 ft² (295 m²) Chalet C7 within a slope. With unreal views of the untouched landscape. The only visible sign of a dwelling existing at all from the surface is the bunker-like entrance shaft which guides the inhabitants down into the hillside.

 


 

The interior has two levels. A base level, built with rocks taken from the same hill, protects from snow in the winter. This wall defines the first floor, anchoring the building to the ground; the bedrooms and private spaces of the house are located behind it. These areas, whose dimensions vary according to domestic needs, are open to the outside. Over the main floor is a second level completely open to the landscape and the northern lights. In this open-plan space, the objects are organized in a flexible way. A robust structure of metal beams defines the tectonic quality of space and allows this open space. The exposure of the large beams, unusual in a domestic space, makes gravity visible.
