How to use the white pin to rebuild a school


How to use the white pin to rebuild a school
The Chilean architecture studio was commissioned to create a home that made the most of its location in Punta de Lobos on the South Pacific Coast. Casa Casi Cubo - or the Almost Cube House - is named after its irregular shape, described the architects as an "abstract deformation of a parallelepiped volume".

Exposed pine wood trusses that support the roof criss-cross through the interior, the natural wood contrasting with the pale wood floors and white gloss kitchen and dining set. Skylights lined in red-painted wooden panels have been set into the roof above parts of the interior not immediately next to a floor-to-ceiling window. The main building`s walls, floors and roof are made from foam-insulated panels.

Maximising views out over the sea was a priority so one entire wall of the building has been glazed, providing uninterrupted views out over the landscape from the living area and the bedrooms. The building`s plan arranges all these main rooms along the length of the building, facing the coast.

The main house of Casa Casi Cubo has been wrapped in "second skin" of pine set back from the main structure, forming the pavilion on three sides of the building. These slatted screens are designed to break the coastal wind while allowing light and breeze to reach the veranda that encircles all four sides of the building.

The Santiago-based studio is adept at working with pine for their coastal project. After the 2010 earthquake off the coast of central Chile destroyed the Santa Rosa School in the city of Constitucion, LAND Arquitectos worked with local NGOs to build emergency classrooms to replace the lost facilities.
