Chile-based COMUN Arquitectos Create Low-Cost Home off the Beaten Path

Comun Arquitectos, MJ Casa, Chile, Catalina Gonzalez, Sebastian Yurjevic, daylight, low-cost design, roof geometry, modern.

The structure of the building was designed from wood and reinforced brick. The wood siding on the exterior is complimented well by the natural interior wood accents, such as the whole log columns in the kitchen. The interior’s white walls create a wonderful canvas for the eye-popping red furnishings, as well.

The features of the low-cost design include daylighting and simplified material details. The extreme geometries of the roof help to create wonderful interest in this ranch home. Clerestory windows within these roof geometries flood the interior with light, while also leading nature to come into the building through framed views.
