Casa Mirador in the Chilean Coast

Casa Mirador in the Chilean Coast

With a panoramic views to the distant cliffs of the south Pacific and the Chilean coast located in Valparaiso, Victor Gubbins Browne of Gubbins Arquitectos created “Casa Mirador”, a residence that is a paean to the iconic villa Savoye by Le Corbusier- in which the Chilean architect visited during his childhood. The modernist structure is actually their holiday home, comprised heavily of concrete, it is a tribute to the French architect and brutal buildings built during the sixties and seventies. Rising above the ground, it is seemingly supported by a single, smaller volume at its base, while generating symmetrical cantilevered areas. The structure is aimed to appreciate its location, and context, despite its dominant form. The double-height main area is entered through a ramp, where a large meeting space connected to two terraces opens out to the sea and the countryside. Simultaneously, a spiral staircase leads up to a roof terrace and as a whole, because of its prominent location and architecture, Casa Mirador can be spotted from far away from the countryside and coastline.
