Houses on the rocks inspired by the shape of birds’ nests

The buildings are placed on wooden platforms in order to minimize their ecological impact on the environment.

Cottages have been built in Matanzas, Chile, a coastal region about a 2.5-hour drive from Santiago. La Loica i La Tagua. The names of the objects are a homage to two species of birds that originate from this region, and the objects themselves not only looks like a bird’s nest, but also use their logic for sheltering from strong winds.

The buildings are placed on wooden platforms in order to minimize their ecological impact on the environment.

Architects study Croxatto and Opazo Architects, who sign the project, decided to, on a rocky and steep location, place the objects on wooden platforms, in order to reduced their ecological impact on the environment.

With surfaces of only 20, respectively 25 square meters, these cottages are big enough to accommodate two people, it says Inhabitat.

Influence of winds

Due to the waves and winds, this area is known for kite riding and windsurfing. Having in mind the influence of the wind, the architects paid attention to the shape of the building, but they also did main front door placed in such a way that they open wide towards the northern terraces, and as a result the building itself protects from strong winds coming from the southwest – just like bird nests.

Ladders for communication

Both facilities have bedrooms located at a higher level, which can be reached via ladder, which offers a beautiful view of the ocean.

Set on steep cliffs, these two cottages offer beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean.

They are organized on the ground floor living room with dining area and kitchen, as well as bathroom, and in order to better optimize the space, the furniture is built – in and custom – made and is adapted to small spaces.

Marine corrosion

They are applied in the interior pine boards coated with a protective oil to protect it from impact marine corrosion. The facade used wood paneling made from recycled oak thresholds.

And this is what cottages look like suton:
