Montes House 

Zapallar, Chile

A place at the beach is always projected with a view to the ocean and, by virtue of this, elevations generally tend to be designed with double heights or uneven volumes. 

The strategy used in this case and which catches our view, is based on an ascending spiral that contains views and a means of reaching the different areas in the house plus one central space.

This central space – inspired upon the spiral idea  - enables there to exist a visual connection between the two floors of the project. So, the house contains all of the family on the first level, and the more intimate ones, on the second level.

The house nestles in a valley along the central coastline of the country so the terrace commands views over three parts of the natural valley.
