Surrounded by views of the Llaima volcano and the nearby waterfront, the Curacautin Lake House complements the Chilean landscape with a dark minimalist form. The simple, geometric volume is clad in black galvanize steel. Recycled native wood lines the inside, a warm contrast to the exterior facade. The home is organized around a central living area. A skylight washes the double-height room in natural light creating a spacious place for gathering. Large panels of glazing afford the interior expansive views of the natural landscape while a rooftop terrace provides vistas of the Araucania mountain range in the distance.
