Native trees hosted by "Casa Un Patio"

Casa Un Patio, in which nature is literally at the center of the project, stands in an extremely dense forest, with problems related to the protection of native species, isolation and accessibility, at the foot of the Chilean volcano Villarrica, in the locality of Molco

The core of Lucas Maino Fernandez's design proposal is the creation of an interior void, with the aim of enhancing a portion of the forest by integrating it into the house. The common spaces of Casa Un Patio are located between the external and internal forest, without interrupting the continuity between the nature outside and inside

Thanks to the presence of the patio, a certain amount of heat and light is guaranteed inside the house, given the dark and cold conditions that the lush forest can produce. On the north facade, which rises more than three meters above the ground beyond the tree canopies, capturing the light from the north, is the entrance to the house

The south facade connects the forest with the living room, dining room and kitchen. The west facade is blind and presents a staircase, which connects first and second level, and finally the east facade accompanies the access corridor, mostly glazed. Casa Un Patio is a proposal of architecture where the problems, easy to read and mainly connected to the context, present simple and clear answers
