Mountain Refuge C7 Retreat House by dRN Architect
Build by Nicolás del Río and Max Núñez in Portillo, Los Andes, Chile on 240 square meters surface in 2008, this Mountain Refuge C7 is located precisely at 2990 meters above sea level in the Andes Mountains. The house is on the south slope of the Inca Lake, just in front of the Portillo Hotel, a few kilometers away of the Argentinean border and Mount Aconcagua. The terrain surrounding this house is a steep rocky slope, facing the immediate view of the lake and the Tres Hermanos Mountains. Over this strong and harsh natural landscape the house disappears from its view uphill, without blocking the view to the lake. The strongest feature is the panoramic scenery of this harsh environment. To help getting the coldness entering the house, a good insulation’s installed and the interior design is added with wooden and plywood materials to bring the warmth atmosphere. This way you can stay warmth on the inside and cool on the outside. Visit dRN Architects website for further information.
