An Elongated Concrete House Sits Along The Chilean Coastline
A lot of contemporary residence situated in remote areas are designed to be in perfect sync with their surroundings and to blend in as best as possible, featuring geometries that mimic the landscape around them and textures and colors that connect them to the topography of the site. That’s not the case with the H House. This is a concrete house designed and built by Felipe Assadi Arquitectos and located on a sloped site in Zapallar, Chile. It has a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean and its design is very…geometric and defined by clean, straight lines and sharp angles. That, however, doesn’t mean it’s not a dream home, especially with all the cool features like the cantilevered pool or the gorgeous interior.
This extraordinary house has a very well-defined structure with large longitudinal and transversal beams which allow both ends to extend seven meters past the main structure, forming covered terraces with gorgeous views. Another interesting characteristic related to the design and the architecture of the H House is the fact that it doesn’t follow the topography and doesn’t mold onto the slope but instead looks as if it;s floating above the slope, as if it’s made out of a single piece of concrete and was placed there by a giant creature. The interior design is in tone with the exterior, being simple and limited to only a few colors and materials. However, the spaces are warm and welcoming thanks to features such as the two-sided fireplace in the living area or the wood flooring.
