House H (2018) by Felipe Assadi Architects located in Zapallar, Chile | The Hardt
House H (2018) by Felipe Assadi Architects located in Zapallar, Chile. The H House is a reinforced concrete structure composed of a succession of longitudinal and transverse beams that work together to generate a single collaborative piece. We prefer, as always, to inhabit a structure instead of structuring a room. In this way, we do not think about the technical feasibility of an ad post project, but before this is the order’s own resolution. That is, before being a house, the project is its own structure. Starting from the top down, of two main longitudinal beams oriented from north to south, 41 meters long and 1.40 meters high, hangs the ceiling tile.
The project consists of a level of access in which the common areas, living, dining, and kitchen are located in a single space, without divisions or pillars, in addition to the master bedroom with its bathroom. The lower level, of external access, contains a family room and secondary bedrooms. The great wall – a beam that arms the main facade of the work, is, in turn, a long piece of wood that runs throughout the house, serving the enclosures according to its own use. In the connection between both levels, where transverse structures are also found with the volume of the pool, the vertical circulation is built, consisting of a staircase and a ramp. Both come to a patio that goes under the main structure from east to west, reinforcing the idea that this project proposes, to levitate on the slope.
