House on a hill overlooking the ocean. Terrace in the middle of the residence sheltered from the winds

Work Arquitectos studio is commissioned by a young family to design a house overlooking the ocean, taking full advantage of the views and at the same time sheltered from the winds, with a terrace in the middle of the house

The young couple with two children wanted to have a house on the beach, which was close to the city of Santiago. A piece of land on the hill in Matanzas is the perfect place for the project, with views of the ocean and the cliffs of the village of La Boca de Rapel

The main objective of the project was to take full advantage of the panoramic views in the surrounding area, without exposing themselves too much to the south winds. The result is a house with three independent areas converging into a terrace in the centre of the house, protected by the volumes, which is nothing more than an extension of the dining room and kitchen

The bedrooms have ocean views, one of which is arranged diagonally to provide the best view. The interiors have a remarkable height, up to 3.4 meters, as it is clearly visible from the outside to outline the best external views
