designed by santiago-based hsu rudolphy arquitectos, the ‘split house’ is located on the bank of rupanco lake in chile. providing an incredible view of the water and volcano osorno, the wooden building features two separate volumes for kids and adults, connected by a gallery.

as required by the client, all the spaces in the house feature a clear lake view — the site was not big enough to accommodate both volumes in parallel to the waterline, so the architects have folded the structure so that its length has shortened. as well as the houses, the connecting gallery features panoramic windows and serves as the main entrance.

the wooden structure proposes a unique geometry — designing the shape, the architects aimed at creating a volume with a minimum of blank walls and integrate as many windows as possible. surrounded by trees, the house blends into the natural environment thanks to its materials and form.
