Concrete Vacation Home By Alejandro Aravena

Oct 17, 2018

Category: Living

Part of the radical Ochoalcubo Project, an architectural laboratory led by architecture enthusiast Eduardo Godoy, the concrete vacation home by Alejandro Aravena is an exercise in primitivism. It’s a retreat meant to age with nature, inviting a pure way of living stripped of the complications of technology.

Bordering on brutal, the design of the two concrete leaning pieces inspires a peaceful way of living. The brilliant home has four levels with a myriad of spaces, including a living room, dining room, kitchen, patio with a fire pit, a master suite with a walk-in closet, and three bedrooms. The retreat invites the beautiful landscape and sounds of the Pacific Ocean in with its enormous windows and sliding walls. There is also one covered personal terrace and one immense terrace suspended above the ravine. With its ancient, simple exterior design and modern interior with smooth design transitions from room-to-room, this concrete retreat is a beautiful escape to a simpler time.
