I am a Chilean architect. I am the senior partner of an architecture studio specialized in high standard housing projects.

The house on the hill

The most important thing when choosing a floor in regards to other elements is designing the interfaces with other materials such as stone or ceramics. The way they interact with windows and walls to.

The best part about this project is Its simplicity in terms of materials; concrete, steel, glass and wood in windows, doors and floors. The idea behind was to create relaxed spaces as continuous as possible between each other, the gardens and the views.

As an architect, the most important thing for a project like this is to understand the life that the building is going to house, in this case my family’s life.
