Anchored to a hillside on the coast of Chile, Casa H sets a contemporary concrete dwelling amongst the rugged landscape. The exterior is made entirely from board-formed concrete mounted to longitudinal beams. Its horizontal design balances over the uneven terrain creating a series of overhangs and floating terraces. Inside, rich wood floors and panels provide a warm contrast to the gray hues of the exposed cement. A linear layout runs parallel with the shoreline allowing every room to capture views of the ocean from floor-to-ceiling glazing. Accessed by sliding glass doors, an expansive balcony running the length of the house extends the interior out to the cantilevered swimming pool.
