We’ve said it before, and we will continue to say it. There is something unique and compelling about modern architecture. Today we get a look at a stunning residence that was inspired by Chile’s rural landscape. The Frutillar House is located at the Llanquihue lake, accented its wooded plot with a remarkable design. The home features a shed-like form that borrows from the local design vernacular.
The structure has a simple gabled form and wood cladding that plays seamlessly with its surroundings. The wooded plot makes a perfect backdrop for the home and its natural palette. The warm tones continue inside, boasting a warm and welcoming aesthetic throughout.
The home’s timber frames and trusses are left exposed, while lighter shades of wood line the walls, floors, and ceiling. A bevy of floor-to-ceiling glazing connects the home’s inside with the surrounding forest while also providing unrivaled views of the natural setting. The Frutillar House is an homage to its environment, boasting outstanding attention to detail and striking design elements.
Take a closer look at this exceptional home in the images below and find out more about the home from Duarte Fournies Arquitectos. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more outstanding examples of modern architecture coming very soon.
