Cabin in Los Molles, Chile

The project Cabaña en Los Molles, is located on the central coast of Chile, on a steep site facing the sea.
These two factors defined the project: different levels adapted to the site and a main facade open to the coast. In the first case, we sought to minimize the excavated area, and equilibrate it with a “cantilever” area suspended. In the second case, the living room in the first floor and the master bedroom in the second floor were prefered to face the coast, articulating both levels with the services area.
Given the difficulty of building the terrain and the local ordinance that bans construction in summer time, the main panels were prefabricated in Santiago, then transported and assembled on site in a short period of time.
