XI Aysén - Chile
In an existing traditional country house we found the perfect excuse to build a different kind of house, reversing the traditional distribution in which we enter through public spaces to access the private areas. The original entry level rooms were transformed into the intimate section (bedrooms and bathrooms). The big staircase, protagonist both in plan and facade, welcomes us as soon as we arrive, clearly telling us that we must go up. Upstairs, a big ceiling creates a large space that houses the communal areas (living, dining and kitchen), which quickly became the heart of the house.
