Mountainside home in Chicureo, Santiago
Designed by Chilean architect Felipe Assadi, this house on a mountainside Chicureo, Santiago, Chile almost steals the show in the spectacular view. To take advantage of its superb environment, Guthrie House Assadi conceived as an observatory to enjoy magnificent views of mountains, valleys, and glittering city of Santiago in the background. Carved into the mountainside, this modern concrete and glass welcomes residents and visitors through a concrete staircase, which descends on the hillside and into the house. Interiors are simple and modern, with a minimum of finishing and contemporary combination of concrete walls and ceilings, lots of glass, and features reminiscent of a modern cellar of the house. But piece of resistance is not found inside. A spectacular roof terrace is the best beat in the house from which to take a sunset or two.
