A house named as omnibus house by the developers, Gubbins Arquitectos is truly a long and narrow residence. The house is balanced by a stone wall at its base. The location for this construction is Chile’s Cachagua. The house is well integrated with the forest located just behind the house. The main element used here is of course concrete.
The concrete used here makes the appearance better of this house with a sense of mass. The high level of openness of this house is due to the heavy use of glass. The very basic element of this house is a very common and basic plan for the construction of a simple urban house. This plan is modified a bit. The places like kitchen, dining, living room along with the dormitories has been deconstructed in this house by using a double circulation method of construction.
This method let these places to be classified in complementary place’s category. This overall concept made it possible for the designers to make a house that is away from the typical urban style with a plus point of being playful. The concrete staircase connects the rooms on the main floor with a terrace on the upper part and a storey below this main floor. The interiors are divided by the use of wooden and glaze board. Overall it’s a nice place to reside here.
