Squella Arquitectos created a dreamlike transparent home that merges with the native forest. Made entirely from local wood and glass, the House at Rupanco Lake stands in Chile's area of Puyehue. The minimal, see-through design gives inhabitants the most amazing views into the forest, lake and sky. More details after the jump.
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.
