This wonderful house with eclectic architecture and impressive gardens of varied flora is located in the city of Zapallar, in Chile. It covers an area of 150 square meters and was designed in 2017 by the architectural firm PAARQ Arquitectos under the direction of Patricio Araya Rodriguez. Zapallar, a coastal city with harmonious streets, is a place where tradition and modernity come together.
The people of the city are migrating, selling their property at good prices and yielding to new constructions. This house reflects the austerity of the day to day, without pretensions; with the simplicity of a beach house. In the middle of the city, a clear volume emerges which tends to be closed to the south, opening to the light of the north and towards the landscape.
The skeleton of the house is made out of wood, and it has a widely ventilated façade. The shade of gray used is the result of a mixture made to highlight the texture, which is conditioned by the different types of light that shine on it throughout the day.
The interior is done completely in white, and is filled with spaces framed by a double height that allows a wide space of natural light and the encounter with the open interior spaces.
