This project explores unconventional structures to create complex inhabitable spaces that open to the mountainous views. The structural strategy consists of positioning four successive steel frames that repeat and vary according to the programmatic, spatial requirements and structural forces. Moving any point in the structure transforms the whole morphology due to its associative and interdependent design. The use of wood at different angles as cladding allows for a direct dialogue with the landscape while the interior, spatial configuration allows for views toward the Andes mountains from all the rooms.
