Don Juan House | Emilio L髉ez Arquitecto



Designed by Emilio L髉ez Arquitecto, Don Juan House is located near the top of a hill along the coastline. Oriented from east to west, the house opens at both sides: in the front facing the ocean and in the back to the native deciduous forest. The double-opening allows crossed ventilation and embeds the house and its inhabitants within the surroundings.

The concept of the double-opening shaped the architecture, which is conceived as two funnels that converge at one side.

110m2 contain a very simple plan, with two levels of open areas that connect through double-height ceilings. The living room, dining room, kitchen, and a complete bathroom are distributed on the ground floor. Two bedrooms facing a double-height ceiling oriented to the ocean occupy the second floor. In the rear fa鏰de, another double-height window opens up to the back with the staircase. Photography: Jag Studio
The entire structure is made with local wood: Amarillo and Asta. Flat-fiber cement panels cover the shell of the house, while the inner fa鏰des are plastered and covered with bamboo, permitting a feel of warm materials within the inside yet not compromising the protection of the exterior of the house.
