Casa de Fundo Punta Callao by Gestaa

View all 8 Photos

Casa de Fundo Punta Callao is all about the views that its natural landscape offers. Designed by Gestaa, the single-family residence is oriented to its site such that the long run of windows sits parallel to the lake shore, while the rest of the house’s volume flares up to a double-height end that frames the Chilean mountains. With its façade clad in dark strips of wood, the interiors by contrast are brightly lit by the light that streams through the generous glazing. The warm living spaces are made ever the more so by inset overhead lights, and wooden surfaces that wrap from floor to ceiling. In this home, it is difficult to escape the presence of nature though it, in turn, offers nature as a means of escape.
