This passive solar stone house is a dream for architecture- and enviro-lovers alike! Designed by Foster Bernal Arquitectos, this beachfront home is ideally located, perched atop a 180-ft. cliff overlooking the sparkling Pacific Ocean. This out-of-the Chile villa maximizes a less-is-more philosophy, complete with photovoltaic panels, a wind turbine, a gravity-fed well, and passive heating and cooling strategies, showcasing sustainability as its trendiest feature. The home is constructed using local stone and wood, and clearly embraces all things native – including the breathtaking beach view, enjoyed from this hillside home’s staggered outdoor decks and patios. Style and sustainability – this home has it all! Foster Bernal Arquitectos
