Cecilia Puga designed this unusual house located in Los Vilos, Chile, overlooking the sea.
The structure is about three monolithic containers of simple bay in reinforced concrete were designed with a layout of perforations in series, in which repetition and intervals allowed for versatility. A spiral staircase made of prefabricated cement was incorporated to vertically connect the upper volume that contains the living room and the kitchen-dining room.
As the house had to accommodate a numerous family of different generations, it was decided that each activity of the house would be dissected to separate the bedrooms, kitchen-dinning room and living room into three autonomous pavilions so as to ensure total independence among them.
