oriented to face the south pacific ocean, santiago-based practice LAND arquitectos has crafted a coastal residence appropriately named ‘catch the views house’. the dwelling is organized in order to provide expansive vistas along the chilean shoreline, framing specific sightlines throughout the two-storey property.

in the same way that rocks surrounding the scheme are stacked, the connected volumes which make up the house are positioned on top of one another, arranged in relation with sunlight and wind exposure. the building’s external skin is also rendered in a color similar to that of the rugged terrain. constructed from prefabricated concrete panels, the home offers high insulation performance, while proving durable when confronted with the region’s erosive elements.
