House Amancay 2 is a single-family residence located on the rocky coast of Zapallar, 180 kms from Santiago, Chile. The steep lot has 2,500 square meters and is 50 mts distant from the waterfront.
The main concept of the project was to take advantage of its rocky cliff by integrating it to the residence´s different levels. It also combines two elements: a closed west facade for privacy from the main road, with a full transparent east facade towards the ocean´s dramatic landscape.
There are three different terraces in different levels; one of these is in the center of the house and is protected from the continuous cold wind coming from the South. This place is the functional center and communicates all the living spaces. It is covered by nine separate concrete beams, which are the support for a future vine. The four bedrooms are located on the first floor. All of them are organized around a central hallway and an interior garden with double height that is communicated with the mail entrance.
The main materials are concrete, crystal and stainless steel. The interior coating is mainly Porcelanato. The terrace in the swimming pool area is made of impregnated pine wood. Most of the concrete retaining walls are coated with grey granite taken from nearby quarries.
Since the roof becomes a fifth façade which is visible from the entrance stairway and parking area, it was covered in stones obtained from the bed of the La Ligua river.
