Description by Gubbins Arquitectos
After greater than 40 years of having fun with the seashore, the donkeys, the hill trails and shoreline of Cachagua many modifications have occurred. The adjustments in customs, structure, the usage of public areas, and the arrival of name and financial institution promoting within the city of Cachagua, one of the stunning locations within the nation, drove us to search out new place the place silence, the panorama, the person and group equality had 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, positioned 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 usually as we are able to, 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 mission 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 could be seen from far-off each from the sector and from the coast, highlighting the principle ground supported by a smaller base quantity, exhibiting symmetrical cantilevered areas.
The architectural idea displays the reminiscence of three visits to the Villa Savoye in Paris designed by Le Corbusier, a mission of a summer time home that Andre Wogensky requested me to design for a Parisian lawyer, positioned on the Mediterranean coast. This mission, the design of 25 homes Serfacoop in Las Condes, and the Rotonda Home in Peñalolén Alto all use a fundamental geometry, a photo voltaic orientation and communication with the location.
The Mirador home rises from the bottom ascending to the primary ground 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 nice area is a double top space via which daylight enters through the morning and the night, and thru which you’ll exit by way of a spiral-staircase to the roof terrace from which dominates the whole space.
The primary ground described is predicated on a base quantity the place a altering room and loo is housed, for many who go tenting or swimming on the seashore.
