Contemporary Clifftop House with Spectacular Views

This holiday residence is located on a clifftop in the Valparaiso Region in Chile, overlooking the ocean. The setting is wild and spectacular, and architects Nicolas Lipthay Allen/ L2C respected this feature in their design.

contemporary-clifftop-house-with-spectacular-views-14-thumb-630xauto-39947

In the design phase two elements were of major influence: the site and the climate. The site because of its positioning and its abruptness, and the climate because of its strong south winds.
contemporary-clifftop-house-with-spectacular-views-15-thumb-630xauto-39949

The starting point was a dilemma, as the house had to be open in order to take advantage of the spectacular views, but it also needed the outdoor spaces to be sheltered from the wind.

contemporary-clifftop-house-with-spectacular-views-16-thumb-630xauto-39951

The solution the architects found to this problem was to place the patio at the back of the house and enclosed by high concrete walls.
contemporary-clifftop-house-with-spectacular-views-17-thumb-630xauto-39953

This solution offers both shelter and privacy/security to the residents, as the house seems surrounded by a protective shell.

contemporary-clifftop-house-with-spectacular-views-18-thumb-630xauto-39955

Though white and different from the dark rock of the cliff, the building is minimally invasive to the site. The house looks as if naturally laid there were the land was flat, and ready to be removed if nature called for it. The element that anchors the house to the site is concrete, the predominant structural material.
