Residential Architecture: Laguna Verde House I by Altamirano Armanet Arquitectos + Carlos Bisbal: “..The request for a second home is set in a rugged terrain on the coast, in Laguna Verde, Chile, and must hold a lifestyle completely different from the city. This is mainly based on the possibility to assemble a group in a permanent relation between the environment and the interior spaces..This is why the spaces are mainly placed in public and outdoor areas. The bedrooms are transformed into simple “roosts”: remote areas for the only purpose of achieving a good rest..The slope of the place was used to dispose 3 levels, each of them with different views and angles. The first level, of double height, contains the common areas and the kitchen. The second and the third level contain the roosts and bathrooms..All this is organized by an oversized grandstand-staircase, which runs through the place and is the main point of encounter. This main point of encounter is connected with all the outdoor terraces, which run around the perimeter of the house, creating various forms of access to both public spaces and the main terrace..” Extensive glazing, natural light, views; clerestory windows; wood flooring, walls, ceilings; interesting interior volumes; indoor / outdoor sensibility..
