Raem House in Curacaví

Pezo von Ellrichshausen 


On a gentle slope rises this lone building characterized by a strict geometry and built with yellow-pigmented concrete. It is organized around a large open patio with a dry garden and some rocks. The perimeter walls embrace this void by stretching on in the form of curved-edged slabs held up by central pillars. With a built area of 187 square meters, the single-level house is raised on a square plinth. On the south and east, the lateral sequences of narrow rooms are slightly buried in the ground. The rooms open out to the patio through sliding doors.
