Loba House (2017) by Pezo von Ellrichshausen located in Tome, Chile. Perhaps the only distinction between objects and things resides in their scale. Closer to any natural thing, in its ambiguous scale, this small building is more than a hut but less than a house: it is a cottage. As an opaque block, a monolithic object heavily anchored at the edge of a cliff, it is facing a sea-lion reserve on the Pacific Ocean. In it’s under dimensioned thickness, in its narrow and tall proportion, the building could be read as an inhabited wall that runs perpendicular to the natural topography. The height of this wall is determined by two lines: a continuous horizon and a stepped sequence of six platforms that descend towards the sea.

 

 

The separation between that horizontal roof (with the function of an open terrace) and the regular extension of the ground (with the informal arrangement of rest, dining and living), a single asymmetrical room, is interrupted by three massive columns and two bridges. While beds are placed in the upper platforms, with a low ceiling, sofas or tables are meant to be in the lower platforms, within a vertical space. There is a discreet regime of openings at either side of the long volume with some punctual skylights, a few half-moon perforations that could be used as sun clocks and a singular corner window divided by around pillar. This is the only window with unframed glass flushed to the outer concrete surface. Mirroring the sunset, an almost impossible and illusory floating rock rests right on top of that reflection.

Rode House (2017) by Pezo von Ellrichshausen located in Chiloé Province, Chile | The Hardt

 

Rode House (2017) by Pezo von Ellrichshausen located in Chiloé Province, Chile. Sitting atop a pleasant and continuous evergreen meadow, overlooking the inner sea of Chiloe Island, this is both a half and a double house. Half, because it is the interrupted encounter between a cone and a cylinder. Double, because the subtraction of a rectangular form at the base of the previous figures generates a pair of equivalent rooms at the extremes of a linear sequence, one facing the direct yellow sun and the other the indirect and blue one. There is a large space contained by these parallel rooms; a partially paved court that is protected from the rain in two covered corners and from the strong winds on three sides. These sides are conceived as functional widths, as emptied thick walls containing all the domestic facilities. 

 

 

 
The presence of the whole curved case is rather asymmetrical: from one side it stands as a massive and hermetic fortified refuge, from the other it appears as a large pitched roof almost without supporting walls. The entire construction is made out of local timber. The structure is defined by the polar array of forty-five rigid frames. While walls and ceilings are clad with boards, a traditional thin wooden shingle covers the conic roof. Knowing that the island is not only well known for the exuberant myths and legends but for a refined artisanal carpentry knowledge expressed both in churches and boats, accepting that something of that local knowledge would inform our project, we preferred to had in mind that delicate artlessness of a totally forgotten wooden padlock.

House RP – Marcelo Rios (2013) by Gonzalo Mardones V Arquitectos located in Barnechea, Chile. The house for Marcelo Rios and his family comes from the order of this former tennis player, also former World No. 1. It’s located in Valle Escondido, a place enclosed on the foothills of Santiago de Chile within a stunning natural environment and a privileged view to the hills and the golf course. The house places at middle levels, adapting to the slope. Also, it’s half-buried in order to appreciate and see the magnificent natural scenery from the access road. The roofs, themes from the distance, were enabled as an expanding large terrace: a place to stay, to enjoy the views, the environment and sunshine. The continuous roofs to the terrace surface were designed with natural vegetation and grass, but Marcelo, like every time he visited Wimbledon says that “The grass is for cows” so we decided to implement a roof with synthetic grass. The artificial grass was installed on rafters, which allowed generating an air bed that protects the cover from direct sunlight, preventing from overheating and affecting the air conditioning inside the house.

 

 


 

The entrance hall acts like a kneecap that relates and distributes the different levels generating inside a sum of continuous merged spaces seeking the views to the garden, the golf course, the remote landscape, and natural light. The house was designed with two opposite faces: one closed to the street with walls containing internal circulations bathed in zenithal lighting and courtyards, and a second face completely open to the terraces, the garden and views protected from the sunlight with wide eaves and beams. We chose to use just one material, the exposed concrete, adding titanium dioxide to the concrete in order to whiten it. Recently, nanotechnology studies have shown that titanium dioxide added to the concrete helps to eliminate toxic gases produced by cars as trees do.  (Although that was not our aim whitening the concrete, we believe that if it’s true, is good news). Every wall, opening, window, window sill, etc, has been faceted with a 12 cm module obtained from the measure of the phenolic sheets.

 


 

The use of the subsoil, what we call the sixth façade, is present in rooms that open, ventilate and illuminate through courtyards and the extension of the foundation to the terrace. The subsoil houses a games room, a trophy room, and a cinema. The whole interior is white in order to enhance the brightness in the house. As the white color makes the light bounce, this is strained and controlled through courtyards and side zenithal openings. The floor and skirting boards help with the idea of white in the interior. For that, bone color ceramic tiles in format 120 x 60 cm have been used. Large windows are made of aluminum, helping with the monochromatic white image of the house. The garden was designed as a raised platform over the golf course, where it is possible to see it but not to be exposed to it.

Located in Colina, Chile, Casa O by 01Arq. On the first floor, the house is buried creating a retaining wall to the south and west. This operation allows locating the parking lots next to a wide ramp that connects the street with the main entrance of the house. The first floor of the 3,500 ft² (325 m²) house contains maximum flexibility in living spaces; they can make up a single space when the sliding wall that separates the kitchen with the dining room is open. During the summer the glass facades are hidden behind concrete walls, transforming the living and dining rooms in a large covered terrace that joins the outdoor pool and garden.

Located in Zapallar, Chile, Aguas Claras House (2009) by Ramon Coz + Benjamin Ortiz. The house is inserted in the terrain taking advantage of the panoramic views and topography. A perpendicular slope towards the sights and the main volume define two levels which are linked by a single vertical element, the black-edged stone chimney that goes through both floors. Access at the top level leads to major facilities: living, dining, kitchen areas and master bedroom, accompanied with two wind protected terraces and a balcony running across all its length, defined by the recessed glass windows in its west view. The lower level contains five bedrooms and a family room.

 

 


 

The immediate surroundings and the panoramic views towards the ocean’s horizon, determine the main building programme to open its body parallel to this gifted sight, while all circulations take place around the building’s forest sides. The said situation defines two distinctly different sides; it comes forward with a fully glazed facade that opens entirely to the sea views when the back entrance is defined with a sealed facade, worked out with timber sleepers interspersed with glass, giving partial views of the woods.
