The almost cube-shaped house is a projected design -- a "result of an abstract deformation of a parallelepiped volume," containing a pavilion type plant. Architecture studio L A N D built the structure out of pinewood, incorporating a truss system for support and façade aesthetic.
Situated in Pichilemu, Chile, the cube-shaped house is constructed with a second skin of wood slat in three of its façades. This is designed to consider the wind factor in the coastal mountain range in Punta de Lobos. With its structurally insulated panels, the first skin serves as a shell for comfort and protection to residents. To optimize landscape and sea scenery, as well as light exposure, L A N D architects have installed beautiful sizable windows as well.
