The project consists of a single family house located in Chicureo, a very hot zone in summer, which is why the starting point of the project was to take over the climate issue.

Because of this, the house was designed in only one level and is based in courtyards to protect it with the shadows of the trees and being close to the soil moisture.

Also were incorporated stone walls that having mass and contribute to the protection of the interior of the house from the high insolation from the west.

Architecturally the house is a series of slabs that form horizontal layers containing planters and the roof. These are perforated slabs supported on walls of exposed concrete or stone.

Two of these stone walls break the roof slab and emerge in height to allow the appearance of the two main courtyards of the house that integrate the landscape inside, bringing light, sunlight in winter, ventilation in the summer and also configure the interior program.

In this way the house is divided into two areas, the most public area and services (such as living room, kitchen) and the private area (of bedrooms and family room).

To the east are the bedrooms looking for mountain views and morning sun. To the north the main living and dining areas are protected by a large covered terrace and facing the golf court. On both fronts eaves protects from rain and sun.

By contrast, there is no westward eaves, but to protect from sun and blend in with the environment, the facade is opaque and conformed by a large stone wall which is interrupted intermittently like the semi demolished “pircas” of the surrounding fields.
