Casa Tunquen in Chile

Words

Mas Fernandez architectos created the holiday home ‘Casa Tunquen’ in Chile. The house is based on a grid of pillars of 3.50 x 3.50 meters, that end up embracing the house, creating a terrace and a small central space (where the Jacuzzi barrel is). The structure is dedicated to the amazing view which becomes part of the external structure of the house.

The interior partitions are made of white painted pine, a local wood which is familiar to the carpenters. Outside, the house was treated with graphite gray primers that ensure low maintenance over time and that strengthen the form of a container.
