Pezo van Ellrichshausen Architects designed this residence that is located in San Pedro, Chile. The dense program of this house for a family with four children (five bedrooms, three bathrooms, family room, studio, etc) is fitted between a regular interior duct and the surface of the largest legally possible exterior wall.
The construction is a monolithic piece of concrete dyed green with a water repellent coat made of Copper Oxide. The openings, distributed according to orientation and programmatic needs, establish varying densities in the wall that wraps this silhouette. This wall is technically composed of two independent reinforced concrete walls (one of them structural) with an insulation layer in between.
The fabrication of this wall was done in situ with the simultaneous pouring of concrete into both walls. Click here for more information!
