    Default Rustic + modern in the chilean countryside

    i think i mentioned in another friend my friend who's one of the partners in an architectural firm specialised in sustainable homes made from, among other things, recycled shipping containers. anyway, this is one of their latest projects, in chile, in a town that's about 30 minutes outside of santiago (when there's no traffic), surrounded by vineyards. it's an elevated/loft type construction and the owner is a single woman.

    Not mad about the house but love the carved African (?) plaque and the antique bureau.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I love shipping container homes. This is about the nicest I've seen because it's actually lived in (mostly, I've only seen models.) What also makes this one special is it's off the ground. That height is wonderful and so is the porch. I could take this, put it on some land on a barrier island, and never need to be anywhere else.
    CHILLY FREE!
