Description by Gubbins Arquitectos

After greater than forty years of having fun with the seashore, the donkeys, the hill trails and shoreline of Cachagua many modifications have occurred. The modifications in customs, structure, using public areas, and the arrival of brand name and financial institution promoting within the city of Cachagua, one of the crucial lovely locations within the nation, drove us to seek out new place the place silence, the panorama, the person and group equality have been prioritized.

We left the Fifth Area North and arrived on the Fifth Area South, shifting nearer to the shoreline, wanting extra intently on the waves, rocks and seagulls.

The panorama of Tunquén of our home, situated in Punta del Gallo, one hour and fourty-5 minutes from Santiago, is extraordinary. We benefit from the space a lot that we’re right here as typically as we will, as a result of on this solitude we discover our being and improvement, dedicating ourselves to studying, writing, watching, walks and talks.

We imagined the home undertaking Mirador, elevated from the terrain, which permits us to see each the land and the ocean directly.

Due to its location and structure, the home may be seen from distant each from the sector and from the coast, highlighting the primary flooring supported by a smaller base quantity, displaying symmetrical cantilevered areas.

The architectural idea displays the reminiscence of three visits to the Villa Savoye in Paris designed by Le Corbusier, a challenge of a summer time home that Andre Wogensky requested me to design for a Parisian lawyer, situated on the Mediterranean coast. This undertaking, the design of 25 homes Serfacoop in Las Condes, and the Rotonda Home in Peñalolén Alto all use a primary geometry, a photo voltaic orientation and communication with the location.

The Mirador home rises from the bottom ascending to the primary flooring by a ramp, and is comprised of a giant assembly area related to 2 terraces that open to the ocean and the countryside respectively on reverse sides, and two departments on each side.

The middle of the good area is a double peak space by way of which daylight enters through the morning and the night, and thru which you will exit by way of a spiral-staircase to the roof terrace from which dominates all the space.

The primary flooring described is predicated on a base quantity the place a altering room and toilet is housed, for many who go tenting or swimming on the seashore.
