Punta Chilen by Guillermo Acuña Arquitectos Asociados is a house extension on bright red-painted pine stilts overlooking the sea on the island of Chiloe in Chile.

The Santiago-based architecture studio designed the annexe as an open-plan living area and indoor barbeque spot for a house next to the mouth of the Chacao Channel.

GuillermoAcuñaArquitectos Asociados撰寫的智利蓬塔是一座房屋的延伸部分,上面塗有鮮紅色的松樹高蹺,俯瞰智利奇洛埃島上的大海。

總部位於聖地亞哥的建築工作室將附件設計為開放式的起居區和室內燒烤場所,該區域是Chacao Channel河口附近的房屋。

Punta Chilen is named after the peninsula of land that the residential complex sits on.

A forest of slim pine columns painted a bright red colour support the raised extension, giving it views out over waters teeming with whales, orcas and dolphins.



The structure sits just above the high tide mark, so occupants can watch the sea coming in and out from the U-shaped upholstered window seats.

Guillermo Acuña Arquitectos Asociados said that the grid of overlapping stilts are designed to recall the woven baskets, traditionally made from manila fibre, used to gather shellfish at low tide on the island.


GuillermoAcuñaArquitectos Asociados說,重疊的高蹺網格旨在喚起傳統上由馬尼拉縴維製成的編織籃子,該籃子用於在退潮時收集貝類。

Punta Chilen’s striking red exterior was chosen to make the structure stand out.

“The red tint on the exterior has to do with the lighthouses, the boat hulls and things that can be seen at a distance, red being a long-wavelength light frequency,” the studio told .

選擇了Punta Chilen醒目的紅色外觀,以使該結構脫穎而出。


Punta Chilen has a gabled roof and walls made of windows held in red-painted frames. A network of raised decks with picnic tables, ramps and stairways connects the annexe to the main house and the beach.

Inside, the slats of pine that form the floors, ceiling and furniture has been left bare. Shelves filled with ornaments and tableware line the walls.

智利的蓬塔有山形屋頂和牆壁,牆壁上的窗戶被塗成紅色。 帶有野餐桌,坡道和樓梯的高架甲板網絡將附屬建築連接至主屋和海灘。

在內部,形成地板,天花板和家具的松木板條被裸露了。 牆壁上擺滿了擺滿裝飾品和餐具的架子。

Three large Chilote fire pits with matching red chimneys sit in the centre of the room for communal cooking. Behind them are rows of counters for food preparation with sinks, fridges and storage space.

三個中央的大型Chilote火坑和相配的紅色煙囪位於房間的中央,用於公共烹飪。 它們後面是一排排用於準備食物的櫃檯,帶有水槽,冰箱和儲藏空間。

A wood-burning stove sits to one side in front of a screen of slim pine slats.


In front of the cookers is a long dining table. Slatted benches covered in cushions ring the perimeter of the glass-walled room.

From these seats, the residents can enjoy unobstructed views over the sea towards the Andean mountain range.

炊具前面是一張長餐桌。 舖有墊子的板條長凳環繞著玻璃牆房間的周圍。
