Occupying a grassy meadow on Chile's Chiloe Island, the Rode House melds together geometric forms with traditional craftsmanship. From the shingles on the roof to the planked walls, the entire structure is made from local timber — a nod to the region's carpentry roots. Its crescent shape wraps around a central courtyard. Comprised of a main living area flanked by two bedrooms, each room opens out to a covered terrace. Protected from the sun and wind, this outdoor space offers a safe haven to take in views of the adjacent sea.
