S House

The first question that arises is: how to raise a house in a place where nature has a strong presence? In response, we proposed a relationship with the landscape through materiality, emulating the house, a rock that was always in the mountains.

The house is a result of several stone boxes piled up on the side of a sloping area. Each one of these cases points and frames an outstanding view, where we can find Catedral, Otto, and Ventana mountains, as main characters of the landscape seen from inside. These boxes are clad on the outside with local stones, seeking a visual connection with the rocks of the surrounding hills. The interiors were designed as “white” spaces, in order to seek a contrast and highlight the landscape, this being the protagonist of the space.
