Unlike the daring Casa Brutale in Beirut, Lebanon, this concrete house by Chilean firm Pezo Von Ellrichshausen is actually complete. Wedged into the side of a rocky cliff in the Coliumo Peninsula, the so-called Loba House is a simple rectangular volume that still makes a statement, even in the midst of the majestic coastal landscape.
Brutal in its aesthetics, the home features a raw concrete shell sparsely punctuated by windows and skylights, and the interiors are equally bare. Board-marked concrete adds texture to the otherwise minimalist space, which is characterized as a single room divided into 6 stepped platforms, with 3 large columns acting as de facto dividers, and 2 “bridges” floating overhead.
Sleeping quarters are placed on the upper platforms, while the living areas are found on the descending levels. The entire roof also doubles as a terrace, which features a staircase lookout point that cheekily references the home’s internal program. Even without an embedded swimming pool, the Loba House intrigues, offering direct access to the waters, and facing a sea lion reserve.
