CML House is a weekend house by Ricardo Torrejón and Arturo Chadwick, located on a 5,000 sqm lot in the Hacienda los Aromos, nearby Limache, (middle-west Chile).
The house is formed as a four winged volume of rectangular blocks which rest on a concrete base. The architects wanted the building to be a nod to the landscape and structurally, the main structure is composed of 2×4” pine lumber and reinforced with steel tubes that prevent wood deformations.
Inside, the home is a refined blend of timber, concrete and glass. The straightforward floorplan integrates the outer scenery and also a private internal courtyard, while each room wrapped in a lightly stained pine wood. The children’s bedroom acts as a common space and above, a flexible loft space serves as a family room. Instead of using punched windows, the timber paneling is interrupted to reveal large openings or ‘blind walls’ that at the same time invites light and frames the immediate context.
