Christian Beals - House in Tunquén, Valparaiso V Region, Chile

A black box is what you see when you approach to this weekend´s house; a massive wooden volume, with an entrance like a cave. Once inside, crossing kitchen and staircase, the house becomes a large double-height window, a balcony, a transparent space to see the sea. This contrast generates a powerful experience between interior and exterior
