Neighboring the forest of southern Chile, the Maullin Lodge modernizes the traditional vernacular of the area. Much of the dwelling is clad in recycled timber shingles and takes on a simple, gabled form like a classic southern home. Topped with a metal roof, the oversized eaves create a covered outdoor terrace overlooking the native trees. Its interior is dominated by open living spaces where timber beam ceilings hover above concrete floors. A northern glazed facade wrapping the main living area floods the room with natural light while windows inserted into the pitch of the roof bring in rays from above. Although the internal partitions are lined in wood planks, the walls of floor-to-ceiling glass afford views of the rural landscape to the ground floor as well as the mezzanine above.
