This house located atan extraordinary urban space is conceived as a “pavilion opened to landscape”. It´s back coincides with the access. It´s hermetic closed curved walls are inspired in the experience of walking by the Richard Serra sculpture of the Bilbao´s Guggenheim with my daughter, Clara.

Curves are resolved as a double system of harmonic auras, which give form to “blow”. It´s a family house located at the bottom of The Manquehue mountain (tutelary mountain of Santiago).

It doesn´t want to be brought up as a special or different  architecture, but generating a whole façade with the neighboring house (my sister´s) designed by National Prize of Architecture Luis Izquierdo. Therefore,  “Blow” adopts the RollanZegershouse lines, generating  the view of an open  great territorial space.

The interior is made by extreme subtracting, an open space with double circulation; one by the hermetic back and the other by the landscape in front, which makes that no enclosure touch the front windows.

A dynamic space is created without hierarchies in it´s spaces. Inhabiting is given as a continuous flow between interior and exterior, horizontal and vertical, making it´s 1200 square meters infinite and multiple.  The roof is conceived as a fifth façade becoming an observation deck plenty of flowers which also helps the thermic efficiency of the house.

The garden concept is inspired as an urban agricultural space  with gardened curved terraces  dialoguing with the access walls along the  25meters long swimming pool. The interior design is conceived from the sculpture concept, creating a dialogue between architecture and sculpture.
