Designed by Felipe Assadi + Francisca Pulido studio this contemporary country house is located in Calera Tango, Santiago, Chile. It’s built for a happy family on 4.5 Ha area with fruit trees only in one hour drive from capital. Concrete foundation wall that what elevates house from the ground includes a swimming pool and a basement. The first volume consist of public spaces like living and dining rooms. This volume is mostly covered by large gazing or with Larch wood. The second volume at the same time is a glass-and-concrete box which features more private sleeping areas. Glass used in the glazing is a thermo-pane glass with a green dye, which filters out ultraviolet rays and creates the greenhouse effect. Folding windows at the top around the perimeter of the house develops a better ventilation. [Felipe Assadi + Francisca Pulido]

    I do not think, no matter how witty the designers might imagine they are, that counter-intuitive stuff like a giant block of concrete ‘held up’ by a wooden structure, IS clever at all.

    Rectangles punctuated by slots, for god’s sake DIE. It’s the metapostneoaltmodpostmodbrutprimitivism. Or is it simply OVER already, like black tutrtlenecks with rectangular glasses? [although the wearers dont know it yet].

    This house was used to film a movie; it is called “La mujer de mi hermano”, or my brother’s wife.
