Casa OchoQuebradas by Elemental

Research, ArchitectureInteriors




Elemental's design for Casa OchoQuebradas draws on the rugged landscape of its site, a cliff on the coast of Chile, to create a rugged, even primitive weekend house design of concrete volumes.

Inspired by their idea that "a weekend house is ultimately a kind of retreat where people allowed themselves to suspend the conventions of life and go back to a more essential living," the house is a simple composition which incorporates such features as a main room which can be opened up to the outdoors and a central open fire.

"To tell the truth, we have been trying lately to be as primitive as possible; in an era where the hunger for novelty is threatening architecture to become immediately obsolete, we are looking for timelessness." explains Elemental. "In this case, the site and the program allowed for a natural move towards the archaic."
