Aguantao House in Chile by Fones Arquitectos

View all 18 Photos

The Aguantao House was designed and built by Fones Arquitectos in Rilan, Castro, in the Los Lagos Region of Chile. Built around the kitchen, the home prioritizes both family time and entertaining. Inside and out, details such as the interior ladder and backyard playground point to the children’s central place in the home. At the same time, the spacious porch and dining area bring guests to the forefront, opening up the space to groups of family and friends. The warm color of the timber cladding further extends the welcome, and the matte black tinplate defines the exterior in bold.
