Felipe Assadi and Francisca Pulido deck house

We have written a few posts recently about Chilean architecture because there are some fantastic young Architects there. Felipe Assadi and Francisca Pulido and their deck house is just another fine example.

The house is unapologetically modern, but sits very comfortably in its natural surroundings. A combination of the use of natural materials and working with the natural fall of the ground, not against it, have made for an excellent example of siting a house for minimal impact on the environment.

Inside, the interaction with the natural environment continues with masses of natural light and the unavoidable views and blurring of the lines between what is inside and what is outside.
