Timber House in the most graceful way and the views to die for!

Guided by a helical path winding its way up the mountain, this amazing 2008 home renovation by architects Jose Ulloa Davet and Delphine Ding is as breathtaking as its awe-inspiring view! Aptly dubbed “Metamorfosis,” this modern timber house in Tunquen, Casablanca, Chile was transformed from standard to stunning through the extension of an existing deck, the addition of a new room, and a new, raw timber skin that unifies the home’s various elements while blending it with the gorgeous rocky landscape. From below, the path makes its way up the hillside, and connects to a walkway leading from the house main entrance, around the house exterior, and up to the spacious rooftop patio. Inside, timber too is a major player, bringing the same “raw” element from the outdoors, but with an added sense of sophistication. A vast picture window frames the stunning scenery.
