Squella’s idyllic gateway in Chile was envisioned as if it had no walls. Made from glass and wood, it beautifully blends with its natural environment and its few furniture pieces are fixed to the floor.

Also made from wood, the roof has a double-beam system for extra strength and upper-level support. Naturally illuminated by sunshine, the only decoration comes from tree shadows! The House at Rupanco Lake is the perfect eco-retreat that even has an exterior deck that the trees grow through.
