Buzeta House | Maitencillo, Chile | Felipe Assadi + Francisca Pulido Architects
Casa Buzeta is a vacation family home located south of Maitencillo, over a creek 70 mts high from the sea.
Since the place presents excellent conditions for kite diving, the house structure has a volume that confronts the wind, boosting the slope and generating a striking sight of the sea.
This volume is looking to the orient as and opaque façade, made out of a huge wood sticks look.
The side facades have been worked with to round windows, which added to the west inclined façade, seem to be a ship over the sea contrast.
Inside the distribution is symmetric, organized by a double high space, where the rooms are.
A curved surface, inspired in pump up kite, covered by copper, goes around the house from east to west, forming a room alley, all of the looking to the sea.
The materials used are pine insigne in the structure, Oregon pine in the exterior and copper on the covers and fireplace.
