MAVA´S house is placed in “Beranda ”urbanization, wich is located in between Cachagua´s and maitencillo´s spas in Chile. The location is in a really strong slope, with a radical sight to Pacific Ocean. It is exposed to South-West winds.

The main strategy was to create a big terrace, creating this  “new floor” that would allow the “leisure life” and make even more perceptible the Ocean sight, Offering a unique relationship between the inhabitant and the horizon line,  the same way as the cliffs do.

The terrace  extends towards the Ocean, removing the view of the existing houses.

The program decomposes into “two units”.  This allows to get in touch with the ground in the proper way, and provides the architectonical support for the terrace.

Southward, there is a big metal and Wood “beam-wall” that allows to delimit the view and take over the South-West winds in the place, and the future neighbors.

Under it, a new place is created, here is the entrance to the house, the relationship between both houses and a place sheltered from the sun.

The architectural promenade is complete when you get into a courtyard which is opened to the sky and from where you access the terrace.

Both Houses develops its inner promenades perpendicular to the slope, involving all the interior rooms of the sight.

The architecture of the two longitudinal volumes, makes the space descomposes and folds into a series of slabs and beams that allows big distances between supports without soiling the ocean view, furthermore it hels to protect the house from the west sun.

The materiality is composed by reinforced seen concrete walls, alluminium windows, double glazing, and wood beams.

The temperatura and atmosphere created by these materials offers a complete integration with the ground and vegetation of the area.
