Does This Seaside House Resolve the Site’s Challenges?
Located on the bracing sea coast of Chile, in a spot with a strong cold South-East wind, this family vacation home is tucked into a rocky outcropping above a beach with ocean views in the opposite direction from the sun, across the ocean.
This has made for some adjustments in design, since the ocean views are not towards the sun, but away from it, towards the South West. The sunlight must be able to come into the back of the house, from the North. (Chile, in the Southern Hemisphere, gets sun from the North)
You enter the house from the beach side, facing away from the ocean view.
Facing the ocean, next to the living room, are the master bedroom and the childrens bedroom.
