Chiloe Big Island. Chile.

Design Date: Chiloe Island. Chile.
Architect: Samuel Bravo
Project date: 2016
Completion date: February 2017

The house is composed of a prismatic volume and a polyhedron that tend to merge into each other creating a double height and openings ruled by a rhythmic structure. The polyhedral roof has a pitched geometry to receive the rain runoff and acts as a solid shell due to the convergence of edges. A bridge access the house from the hill.

The house contrast this two features of traditional architectures, on side regular and rhythmic structures and on the other, closed hermetical volumes. At the same time it proposes a new spatiality in terms of light and openings.
