Despite the windy climate of Rocas Santo Domingo, Chile, the Rock House was designed by UN Arquitectura as a safe place, perfect for summer family getaways. The appearance of the residence showcases an intriguing junction of shapes and volumes, inspiring soberness due to the color choice and functionality, as the result of the materials used. Concrete and wood were employed to divide the levels of the house visually, this design approach also providing the project with a strong personality.
Home built on two levels, the Rock House accommodates the public areas on the first level, while on the second floor hosts the bedrooms. The interior in the most is made of wood and generous windows throughout, the interiors give away a sense of warmth, somewhat contrasting the seriousness inspired by the main facade. Well picked furniture items and subtle color additions are also elements that contribute to the overall welcoming feel. The patio provides a privileged green space for residents. All holidays can be carried out in the courtyard, in the fresh air, listen to the sound of noisy waves.
