Basic Black

This little nugget in Chile, is a concise minimalist expression. The structure is sited with breathtaking views and  given lots of room to breathe. Its presence is strong in the landscape despite the petite footprint due to expressive form and bold color. Designed as a prototype, the designers Foaa –Norte completed this project in 2012 at a price of $650/sqm. It is simple, with space defined by function and a program focused on inexpensive materials and solid construction. I must say, I find this to be a beautiful and livable result. I especially like the deliberate placement of windows, framed for the passerby, to capture a moment in time. It is these architectural opportunities that allow this home to live much larger than the implied boundaries of its 4 walls.
