The volume of Algarrobo House is divided into areas housing different programs: private, semi-private and public. Its modular structure makes it easy to differentiate between open and intimate spaces, occupied areas, circulation, and terraces. Providing views of the forest on each side, the house becomes a perfect place for enjoying the Chilean natural landscapes.
