Architects: Cecilia Puga     Photography: Roland Halbe     Construction Period:  2017     Location:  Bahía Azul, Chile

The construction appears leaning out on the seashore, like the stations on the shore of the train line to the north of Chile, where after having fallen into disuse only the solid has remained. Everything “perishable” has succumbed to looting and time. Containers emptied of everything, with their only rectangular perforations in the walls, distributed along an imaginary line.

The project was approached independently from the specific location and it was decided to break up the program separating bedrooms, dining room-kitchen and living room in order to ensure total independence between them. Monolithic reinforced concrete containers were designed with a perforation regime that ensured versatility of placement and association between the volumes, which were not pre-determined.
