The clients have a very big family, 8 children’s and 12 grandchildren’s, our proposal was to fragment the program into several smaller cabins, giving independence to the families of the sons or guests and then the Maitén House was conceived as a common space to shelter the guest of the cabins and with a master bedroom and 3 rooms for single children’s.

The position of the house in the first row to the lake left to common areas and cabins in a rear area, which is why it was designed taking all private areas towards the ends, leaving a double height with the common areas in the center giving a transparency to the back of the house. This connection to this “Back” is enhanced by burying the first floor, access, parking and services.
