The House on the Beach of the Pacific Ocean by Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez
This house in a Chilean city Quintero was built by the studios Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez in 2009. The tight budget and unfavorable natural conditions defined the basic lines of design. La Baronia House is situated not far from the Pacific Ocean, so it can cause the problems for the construction because of corrosion. Due to the using of two inert materials - glass and weathering steel - this problem was decided. The house has two levels designed differently from each other to create different relations with the horizon. Common areas upstairs decorated and made of variation of wood, whereas the bedrooms downstairs have horizontal window, detached from the wooden structure. This architectural idea has allowed maintaining access to the beautiful views in an uncomfortable for construction place.
