Mountainside Homes – observatory-like design with a spectacular rooftop patio!

Designed by Chilean architect Felipe Assadi, this mountainside home in Chicureo, Santiago, Chile almost steals the spotlight from the spectacular view. To take advantage of its awesome surroundings, Assadi designed Guthrie House as an observatory from which to enjoy unparalleled views of the mountains, the valleys, and the city of Santiago glimmering on the horizon. Carved into the mountainside, this modern concrete and glass house welcomes residents and visitors alike via a concrete staircase, leading down the hillside and into the home. Interiors are simple and modern, with minimal finishes and the contemporary combination of concrete walls and ceilings, lots of glass, and built-in features reminiscent of an ultra-modern cave home. But he piece de resistance is definitely not found inside. A spectacular rooftop patio is the best beat in the house from which to take in a sunset or two. Felipe Assadi.
