A Modern Concrete Beach House By Gubbins Arquitectos

Words

Located on the coastline of Valparaiso in Chile, ‘Casa Mirador’ is a sculptural concrete holiday home designed by Victor Gubbins Browne of Gubbins Arquitectos. Because the house is elevated from the ground, it allows residents to get a view of both the rugged landscape and sea at the same time. Additionally, the main area of the beach home is entered through a ramp and is connected to two terraces. The building concept was inspired by Le Corbusier’s modernist building ‘Villa Savoye‘ and also features brutalist architectural elements.
