Pampa Home by Mariana Palacios:

“La Pampa de Pocho is an amazing place which tends to make the viewer fell in enjoy with its silent and monochromatic landscape. The home lies at the center of this magical location, surrounded by 3 big stones which, at the very same time, safeguard the house from the intense regional winds.

The principal notion is that guests can see a black level in the horizon and can differentiate the house’s powerful geometric form from the regional rock massifs. The black shade of the sheet metal accompanies the stony colour common of the zone.

Due to its inhospitable qualities (cold, dry and windy climate conditions), its isolated place from any population, its extremely challenging accessibility, and the lack of specialized neighborhood labor force, the determination about the structural technique to be implemented was the primal concern of this project. An industrial building program was chosen in purchase to enable an simpler transport of the components employed as effectively as a feasible development beneath unfavorable bodily circumstances (neither water nor electrical power).

In the south-dealing with façade, there are number of windows and an entrance and in the north-facing façade, there are massive windows and door openings which capture the greatness of the landscape and enhance the entry of warm all-natural light. Indoors, there are 2 patios which accompany the tour: the massive one particular backlinks the property to the barbecue region the narrow a single, the one particular with native cactus plants, lights up the corridor as well the bedrooms.

The stone utilised was collected from the zone (it was the only materials that needed the use of water.) Water is provided through a pumping method of water coming from a close by spring and electrical power through a method of solar energy.

The achieved aim of this project was to inhabit this magical spot and celebrate in each room our Nature’s impressive sights.”
