A double ascending spiral allows the inhabitant, as well as the house itself, to elevate above existing edifications and open up towards the golf course and the ocean, surrounded by the Andes and the horizon. The first spiral is a physical one, constituted by the precinct´s wall, in exposed concrete, that surrounds the house´s site and transforms itself into a parallelepiped that travels towards the horizon. The second spiral is more spatial and its sensed while moving around the house. A series of patios and exterior stairs unfold and vertically communicate the different areas, finalizing on a great terrace located on the third floor where the pool and the dining and social areas are located.
