casa en linderos, situated along the araucarias de linderos golf club 30 kilometers south of santiago, chile, enjoys unabated landscape views through a kinetic facade of movable screens. given the exposed nature of the lush site, utilizes various internal courtyards to conceal itself from the public street while still providing natural light and private outdoor spaces for the clients.

the residence is designed by the studio of local architect cristian hrdalo to benefit from the chilean climate and pastoral surroundings, featuring cast-in-place board formed concrete walls, polished floors and ceilings  that frame various openings to the exterior. the entry elevation meets the street with opaque facades of corten panels and exposed concrete, separated by an expansive driveway that guarantees a buffer between the public and private areas of the site. the floor plan is organized on a regular grid of steel columns that allow for the free movement of sliding screens to either expose or conceal the interior.

the first floor contains the shared living spaces- kitchen, dining room, sun rooms, and several living areas that open up to the central courtyard, along with the master suite and 3 additional bedrooms. a second master bedroom and large rooftop terrace comprise the second story enjoying 360-degree views. inside, large panes of glass interplay with solid concrete walls and corten sheets to subdivide a compartmentalized floor plan into various zones of privacy.

along the west side of the home, a wing defines the outer border of the courtyard as a semi-outdoor living area with sliding perforated metal screens and operable louvers along the ceiling that can completely enclose this space or open it to the exterior. this further controls views into the home from the golf course
