Designed by architect Orlando Etcheberrigaray of the studio emA and built/managed by Osvaldo Cardemil and Sebastián Gandarillas, the project’s intention is to provide a dwelling with a simple yet refined layout to function either as a ready-for-habitation model or allow for extensions and modifications.

Located on a hillside site, the house’s floor levels step downward toward a large view of the valley below as well as an exterior pool. with a consistent roof height, the arrangement produces a sequence of increasingly tall spaces, thus distinguishing private program from common areas.
