Casa Mirador in the Chilean Coast Read By Gubbins Arquitectos

Architect Victor Gubbins Browne of Gubbins Arquitectos designed “Casa Mirador”, a residence that is an anthem to the iconic Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier- in which the Chilean architect visited during his childhood.

The futurist structure is their holiday home, composed heavily of concrete; it is a tribute to the French architect and unmerciful buildings built during the 60s and 70s. Rising above the ground, it is apparently supported by a single, smaller volume at its base, while generating proportional cantilevered areas. The structure is intended to appreciate its location, and context, despite its dominant form. The double-height central area entered through a ramp, where a large meeting space combined to two terraces starts out to the sea and the countryside. Together, a spiral staircase leads up to a roof terrace and as a whole, because of its outstanding location and architecture, Casa Mirador can be spotted from far away from the countryside and coastline.
