This Curvy Organic Abode Is A High-End Hideout Above Chile’s Pacific Coast

Around the world, architecture is revered as a living, breathing art form. Its ability to create, diversify, and unite, isn’t confined to any specific area, period, or person. Instead, its influence spans across the world’s vast landscapes, oceans, and continents, speaking to whoever will listen. Such is the case with Tokyo-based architect Ryue Nishizawa’s Eight Cubed home — a flowing concrete structure situated along the Pacific coast of Chile.

As you might have already surmised, Chile’s sweeping vistas and dramatic environmental characteristics are a far cry from Japan’s. However, Nishizawa’s influence boasts breadth, allowing him the opportunity to create one of the genre’s most stunning homes, almost half a world away. Nestled into the contours of the country’s rocky coastline, Eight Cubed defines itself through a unique, curving roofline, with no primary walls to speak of. Instead, the home’s supporting functions have been replaced by strong steel columns, glazed, open-ended windows, and subtle woodwork. Inside the primary residence, a kitchen, dining room, and bedroom suite have been adorned in modern furnishings, promoting an aura of otherworldly poise. Below, a small, segregated partition houses a relaxing sauna, sunken tub, and various bathroom fixtures, allowing denizens to peer out from the cliffside as they go about their daily routine. Head to Nishizawa’s website to learn more about the Chilean escape.
