CRUZ OVALLE, José  and  PURCELL, Juan. Casa en Valle Escondido: Lo Barnechea, Chile. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2010, n.75, pp.64-65. ISSN 0717-6996.

This project originated from the transformation of a spot in the foothills of the Andes, in place relating to the dimensions of the landscape, incorporating its potential in the interior of the house. From the horizontality of a patio at the base of a grove of native trees one accesses the house. The work incorporates the slope of the terrain in its interior by means of varying floor levels, stairs and bridges articulated from the trunks up to the foliage. The lower levels are extended toward the exterior to create terraces and the heights are projected in the volumes that vitalized the relationship with the nature.

Keywords : Architecture-Chile; single family dwelling; garden city; reinforced concrete; wood.
