This Countryside House is Designed by Benjamín Murúa Architects, located in Chile.
The gallery took the place of the core circulation connecting all the areas but also acts as a place to stay because of its width and orientation to the morning sun and the hills. On the other side, the corridor was extended to the garden overlooking the valley and protected from the heat during summer days. Once the gates that contain the space are opened, the garden blends with the landscape. To give a fresh look to the 20th century Chilean architectural elements, contemporary materials were used. New technologies focus on constructive details and materials like glass, steel, wood and concrete were included.

The objective of the project was to reuse and emphasise some elements of the Chilean houses of the early 20th century that were present in the pre-existing building such as patios, galleries and open corridors. The operation was to extend the 2 circulations to the north so as to integrate all with a second “L” where the new 3 bedrooms were included, connecting the old part to the new one with a threshold.
