Plinth Home by LAND Arquitectos

View all 14 Photos

Wet suit on, board tucked under your arm, just a short walk out the back door and the cresting waves are waiting for you. What a life!  A surf enthusiastic family built the Plinth home by LAND Arquitectos in Chile right along the water.  Wide open rooms are enhanced with woodwork, the center of the home surrounds a stone hearth.  The flagstone floor extends throughout the home and even outside into the patio areas.  Limited fresh water resources inspired controlled green areas.  The design goes against natures fierce elements.  Walls and angles protect from whipping winds.  Porch and patio trellis blankets the outdoor living spaces with shade from the blistering sun rays.  The calm of the ocean enters the home with every view from any room.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
