House On The Andes by Juan Carlos Doblado
Facing the Andes, the house tries to maximize views of the surrounding mountains. Its horizontality of the conformation looks to accentuate its relationship with the landscape.
The house is set in the top of a sloping ground, enriching the relationship with the topography of the project. The program is organized into two parallel and horizontal volumes outdated, based on a simple geometry where the inside is as important as the exterior.
The courtyard entry articulates both volumes under one cover and provides a visual opening to the mountains surrounding the valley. In both volumes transparency is what dominates them. Each room has an entire side made of glass, making the landscape part of the interior space and expanding it.
The available space inside allows you to integrate multiple sliding glass screens. The front volume of the house includes all the social spaces, the kitchen and some of the bedrooms, finishing with the main bedroom that is projected like a balcony facing the Andes. The service area is located under the ground taking advantage of the slope. The subsequent volume includes the family room and two guest bedrooms.
The general language of the house consists of exposed concrete walls evoking the timelessness of the stone and sliding colorless glass doors. The bottom part of the wall is covered with a dark stone to accentuate the weightlessness of the two main volumes.
