Speaking of buildings in Chile, this pavilion is undeniably one of the buildings with the most elegant designs located in the country. It is a 2012 project by Matias Zegers and it is situated in Casablanca, ValparaÃso.
The pavilion boasts a modern design and weathered concrete was chosen as the dominant material used in the pavilion. The weathered concrete is rugged enough to effortlessly blend with the landscape.
The pavilion itself sits on top of a hill and is crowned by an old twisted tree and at first glance, it displays an ambiguous form of vernacular construction and what is known as a deliberate modern building.
The pavilion has two massive raw volumes which are set apart by an equivalent vacant volume and in addition, it also has a large terrace where the old mesquite tree stands. The pavilion also has a roof that has a monolithic pyramidal shape and is carefully placed on top of layered concrete walls.
Located in Casablanca, ValparaÃso, Chile, Casa Mirador is a pavilion with rooms that are organized in a sequence of contrasting spaces. The pavilion also has a narrow entry patio which is shaded by tall walls and frames dramatic views to the sky.
Aside from the narrow entry patio, a living space that is subtly illuminated and intimate, as well as a wide panoramic window is also amongst the various parts of the pavilion.
In addition to having the various said parts, the pavilion also has a sharp edged concrete slab that makes the pavilionâ€™s roof seem like a weightless plate. The pavilion also has a walled patio with an olive tree in the center and in addition, the pavilion has an elegantly designed kitchen as well.
If you wonder how the pavilion looks like, you can take a peek at photos of the pavilion captured by Cristobal Palma.
