Branko Pavlovic + Pablo Lobos-Pedrals' House Tunquén in Chile

Concrete foundations support this pinewood house in Chile that responds to its dramatic coastal surroundings

Far from the city, the isolated House Tunquén draws water from wells and uses solar energy. The plan of the house consists of three arms that respond to the surrounding topography, sloping out and stepping down to face the sea with large openings. The black shell of the building seems to float on the hillside, the interior built from contrasting neutral recycled wood.
