Surrounded by hiking trails, lakes, and lagoons, Casa R is an adventurer's getaway. The classic A-frame is hidden in the woods of southern Chile. Its blackened timber facade blends into its forest setting. A traditional chiflonera acts as a woodshed while providing entry to the two-story cabin. Its compact interior is laid out in an open floor plan with the common areas below and a sleeping mezzanine above. A wall of windows afford views of the natural scenery to both levels while welcoming in natural light. Each floor opens out to a terrace, where glimpses of the valley can be admired from beneath the shelter of the oversized roof.
