With the living area also embracing the new kitchen dining space and the home office next to it each room flows into the next and eventually merge with the sweeping wooden deck and porch outside.
The glass walls are seamless and there are times when you would believe that the boundaries are simply non-existent! On the inside it is a curated blend of farmhouse aesthetics and modern comfort that take over.
The house has been arranged in two different planes with the lower level containing the living area kitchen and dining. A long covered corridor connects the central courtyard of the residence with the garden and provides a sheltered and illuminated walkway that feels magical.
At the heart of this Chilean home designed for a family of five is a large double-height living area with small loft space above. Essentially a single level structure the height of the home allows for the addition of a smaller loft level without having to commit to building an entire second level.
A loft-style bedroom and reading nook sits above the kitchen and dining space and offers a wonderful whimsical escape while natural fiber rugs and linen curtains usher in a sense of softness and visual contrast.
This creates a cheerful and well-kit atmosphere even as the living area flows into kitchen and dining space next to it. Adding another layer of intrigue to the apartment is the use of uncovered thermo-clay bricks in the living area and plasterboard in the bedrooms; giving the new home plenty of visual contrast.
