OUTsideIN House by Fernanda Vuilleumier Studio

July 20, 2013

Fernanda Vuilleumier Studio have designed the OUTsideIN House in Chile.



The design of Outside IN House consists in bringing the exterior materials to the interior. The materials carry ambivalent meanings of a vernacular form. On one side Outside IN Homes are functional and domestic. A thinking-home has passive solar elements to contain, save, and distribute solar energy for diurnal warmth, cooling, and illumination.

A TROMBE stone wall is placed in front of the sun, made of materials that can act as a thermal mass. The roof functions as a wind sail to make the air flow in one direction and capture the rainwater.
