Mixed Material Homes
The 3 Element House Blends Rich Wood and Concrete Surfaces Magnificently

The 3 Element House, designed by architect Tomás Swett, is a magnificent example of contemporary architecture in Chile. One of the main requirements for the structure, as requested by the patrons, was that it have a connection to the natural landscape that surrounds it; in meeting this demand, Tomás Swett challenged traditional notions of space.

What I particularly like about the 3 Element House is how it blends different materials on the exterior: the rich dark wood with the concrete surfaces. If you have not already, be sure to check out the pics of this stunning home.
