House in Lake Ranco

This vacation home is extended along a hillside in southernChile. It is  a pavilion open to the lake on the north, with a terrace covered by an eave, and a symmetrically arranged glazed gallery on the south side, parallel to a longitudinal courtyard formed by a retaining wall.

The pavilion has a regular exposed structure of laminated pine. The structure consists of two lines of pillars, spaced 3.7 m. apart, with main beams, assembled with carpentry joints, supporting a grid of parallel wooden trusses and a flat waterproofed roof. Further down on the beach, another smaller pavilion was built, which includes a barbecue area and boathouse.
