Living with Nature: Smart Chilean Home in Concrete, Wood and Glass

A home that becomes one with the surrounding landscape is increasingly becoming a popular demand with homeowners across the globe. Gone are the days when the suburban residence was an entity in itself that was disconnected from the scenery outside and boasted a polished, urbane interior. Nestled in a lush green neighborhood of Las Condes, Santiago, Chile, ‘The House and The Trees’ offers precisely what its name suggests. This beautiful and relaxing home was designed by Iglesis Arquitectos to integrate effortlessly with the existing trees and greenery, even while providing a cozy and comfortable living environment.

Glass walls and doors blur the line between the interior and the garden

This was accomplished by keeping the structure of the home simple and minimal. It is the wooden ceiling and the concrete floor that act as two simple planes that define the residence, with the glass walls creating flexible boundaries between the interior and the garden outside. The interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces is seamless, and one feels as if surrounded by the lovely garden while sitting in the living area or the family room.

An open living space leads to the more private bedrooms and a wonderful home office / study that adds color and contrast to the overall picture. Unassuming, efficient and eco-sensitive, this Chilean home is truly one-of-a-kind! [Photography: Nico Saieh]
