Cristian Hrdalo designed the Paravicini House located on Beranda, just north of Santiago. The Chilean beach house sits on a steep hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the village of Cachagua and was designed for a Swiss couple and their three children. The family wanted two floors that spanned the width of the property with the goal of each room having ocean views.
The rough concrete exterior adds texture to the facade and depending on how the light hits it, the color changes.
The lower floor houses the public areas with the kitchen, dining, and living room having direct access to the terraces. The upstairs accommodates the bedrooms and a family room.
Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open the interior to the terrace and pool extending the square footage.
The pool was built at a lower level as not to block the views of the beach from the public areas on the main floor.
