Casa Loba, a contrast in nature

Casa Loba, designed by Pezo von Ellrichshausen Architects along the Chilean coast, appears as a monolithic block of concrete anchored to the edge of a cliff.

A scenographic composition that is very reminiscent of Adalberto Libera’s Villa Malaparte.

A volume that, seen from a distance, could also look like a wall – in reality it hides a minimal, decidedly austere space, characterized by unique openings arranged both along the sides and on the roof. A cynical environment. Essential. Which almost seems to want to counterbalance the harmony of nature and its sweet and gentle forms, with an almost unnecessary contemporary brutalism.

With the same architects, and the same minimal style and in the same places, I suggest you also take a view of Casa Poli.
