Casa Hualle is Built to Impress

Sited on a grassy plot near the Villarrica volcano in Chile, the Casa Hualle draws inspiration from its active neighbor with a dark timber cladding. The simple volume takes on a geometric silhouette with a folded roofline. Covered in a charcoal-washed verticle siding, the exterior stands out from the rustic landscape while also nodding to the region's vernacular architecture. Inside, washed plywood panels line the interior. The minimal palette acts as a backdrop for strategically placed windows that frame in the dramatic landscape surrounding the property.
