A tonal cabin in the woods, the Quebrada House can be found in in Curacaví, Chile. The UNarquitectura home stands on diagonally angled pilotis and looks out over the trees and creek. The blackened pine exterior echoes the darker shades in the surrounding terrain. Meanwhile, the white interior stands out against the black walkway. A glass wall in the living room makes these contrasts transparent and connects the home to the natural environment.
