Triangular embeds PR House on a forested hillside in Chile - architecture and design

Triangular embeds PR House on a forested hillside in Chile



A series of concrete retaining walls help support an irregularly shaped holiday home in southern Chile that was designed by architecture firm Triangular.
The PR House is located in Cunco, a city in Chile's Cautn Province. Designed for a family from Santiago, the vacation home sits on a wooded hillside that looks toward Colico Lake.

The main challenges for Triangular, a Santiago-based firm, were building a home on a steep slope and capturing views of the lake.
The team ended up creating a two-storey, 240-square-metre house that is roughly V-shaped in plan. The home is oriented in a way that provides the most extensive views of the water. The building cantilevers over the grassy landscape towards the water
The home is set amongst a series of concrete retaining walls that enable the building to rest on the hillside. The walls intervene as little as possible in the terrain, and their graphite colour helps them merge with the site, the architects said.
Materials were chosen for their durability and ability to blend with the natural context.
The walls were placed to intervene as little as possible in the terrain
Facades are clad in high-performance wood that has been chemically modified through a process called acetylation.
"This kind of cladding, provided by the company Leafwith 50 years of warranty, is perfect for the rainy climate of Cunco," the team said.
