About Aravena at Ochoalcubo en Ochoquebradas Ocho Quebradas, Other Coquimbo, Coquimbo
Winner of the Pritzker Prize, the Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena, delights us with a work of art in the third stage of Ochoalcubo in Ochoquebradas. Magnificent vacation home facing the Pacific ocean, “which is not at all pacific here”, where we can explore the possibilities of primitivism; a place of retreat which allows us to return to the purest and most essential way of life.
Distributed on four levels, the property inspires tranquility. On the main level, we find the living room, dining room, kitchen, patio with bonfire / firepit, and the master suite with walk-in closet and beautiful bathroom.
That is why there is no fireplace, but a place for fire, and its concrete walls aspire to age like stones, gentle with nature and brutal with the passage of time. The project of the office of Aravena: Elemental, has simple lines, bordes on the primitive: three volumes of concrete, placed one on top of others, can be easily confused with the rugged landscape.
It has been conceived with the possibility of integrating all spaces thanks to large windows and sliding walls that allow open/ loft living or privacy. On the other three levels, 3 bedrooms each with its own bathroom, offering privacy and protagonism to the simple, the pure and the landscape. Its large windows incorporate the exceptional landscape of the property. Two imposing terraces: on the last floor, an intimate covered terrace, and on the entrance level a large terrace suspended above the ravine.The pure and primitive design is complemented by details and luxury finishes with comfort in all its spaces.250 meters of construction in 5,450 meters of land with landscaping carefully designed and executed by Costa Nativa, respecting the topography and integrating only native flora.Ochoalcubo is considered an “architectural laboratory” unique in the world. Just 4 kilometers from Los Vilos, there are 800 hectares of virgin land, facing the sea, a magical place with dramatic cliffs, bays, dunes and rock formations, where Ochoquebradas is developed. The first line was reserved to develop simultaneously the third and fourth phases of Ochoalcubo; the bet was to invite recognized Japanese and Chilean architects. Among them are three Pritzker winners, Kazuyo Sejima, Ryue Nishizawa and Alejandro Aravena.
