Southern Chile's harsh climate brings extended periods of rain and cold temperatures but what it lacks in sunshine, it makes up for in rugged landscapes. Casa KDDK is no exception. Its site is enveloped in lush, green meadows and dense forests. To take advantage of the views, the zinc-clad dwelling is sited on the property's highest point, also allowing the home to attract the largest amount of natural light. These incoming rays are brought into the interior through expansive glazing and when combined with an all-white palette, create a light, airy atmosphere even in the darker, dreary seasons. The transparent facade also keeps the interior connected to the scenery year-round while iron and glass screens fold open to allow for a summer terrace in the warmer months.
