Rising through the treetops of a forest in the Chilean Andes, the La Dacha Mountain Retreat is heavy on views and design. Its verticle approach allows for a small footprint, causing little disruption to the natural landscape while the charred conifer cladding compliments the surrounding evergreen trees. Internally, native Lingue wood lines the interior provides a rustic warmth for the worldly mix of modern furnishings. The interior is spread throughout three levels. The main living area has been placed above in the surrounding canopies to maximize views. Overlooking both the Nevados de Chillan volcano and the Valle Las Trancas, strategically placed glazed panels take advantage of the home's V-shape to frame-in distinct scenes of the mountainous setting.
