Tavonatti House: Modern Coastal Style Complements Distant Ocean Views

Cachagua is a quiet and idyllic little coastal town in Chile where sun, sand and surf provide a relaxing and rejuvenating escape. It is in this beautiful setting that the Tavonatti House was built by PAR Arquitectos; making most of the distant ocean views even while ensuring that the contemporary structure fit into the local building norms. The unique design of the house places the living area, kitchen and dining on the top level that extends outside and into the lavish wooden deck while the lower level houses the bedrooms and other private spaces. Inverting the traditional floor plan, the home offers its owners captivating ocean views from the public spaces while the bedrooms are cleverly concealed.

Pine wood ceilings and paneling adds to the charm of the spacious home with smart ventilation and light filtering technology keeping out topical heat without hindering flow of light. Transition between both the levels of the house is seamless even as the understated d├ęcor ensures that the focus remains firmly outside. [Photography: Diego Elgueta]
