santiago-based felipe assadi arquitectos‘ bright red home is designed to contrast and compliment the green landscape of san josé de maipo, chile. la roja is a cube-like home that comprises two floors made up of two prefab modules each, with part of its mass subtracted to create a double-height entryway and terrace. each of the modules can be transported on trucks and assembled on site, with dimensions that virtually allow for prefabrication on any given plot.

the house is located in a low-density, mountain area and has no visual contact with its neighboring structures, which allowed felipe assadi to make the grand gesture of painting it a contrasting, crimson red. the architects balanced the intense exterior with bright, airy interior spaces, finished with a floating staircase and floor-to-ceiling windows on the wall facing the terrace.
