This house was designed for a beautiful spot on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Chile. It is located at the tip of a small promontory. The house's shape fits the landscape of the promontory, in a long and narrow space with floors that go up and down following the contours of the site, covered by a roof on top. The roof comes down to the ground in some places and gently divides the space underneath into sections,giving shape to the design. At the tip of the cape, there is a public space that includes the dining room. The views of the sea from this vantage point are magnificent.
