Minimalism. House W by 01Arq.

Chilean architectural firm 01Arq has completed the House W in Huentelauquen, Chile.

This coastal home is built to maximise the view while protecting from the windy conditions of the area.

Located in Region IV, on the windy coastal town of Huentelauquén, W House develops a program that includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room and terraces. The commission presented two restrictions, the first to create spaces protected from the wind and the second not exceed a construction budget of 12 UF (US$ 500) per square meter.

The house is located parallel to the sea, maximizing the view. Common areas are located to the south taking advantage of views over the existing cliff; these are resolved through a large space that includes kitchen, dining and living room.

The program of these patios refers to the need to control the prevailing wind, the first developed as an intermediate space for expansion of the living room area and the second is designed to accommodate the tents of the children who can camp in safely. Between the two patios the access and the parking for two cars are located.
