The Casa Swift house in Chile has been designed by WMR Arquitectos, located on the country's windy coast. Overlooking the world-famous windsurfing haven of Matanzas, the architects conceived this residence for a professional wind surfer and his wife with the idea of creating 'a house that is not a home.'

Set in the typical Matanzas woody landscape close to the beach, Casa Swift is the perfect holiday home. The architects were commissioned to design a house that was to work as a hotel, where each room is independent from each other. With this in mind, the house was organized into different split-levels, according to the views and degrees of privacy.

Partly cut into the landscape is the swimming pool on a lower level, followed by the parking, storage and gym facilities on the ground floor.
