The commission comes from two families who are friends and neighbors and who decide to build identical houses on a site near Ranco Lake. The houses needed to house up to 12 people on periods of vacations and weekends, all year round.  Lastly, the project had to privilege family life with a permanent interaction between its dwellers. Both sites have similar conditions regarding topography and distance to the access road but differed in the surrounding conditions. While one site was clear of trees, the other was immersed in a native forest. For this reason, the projects are not subject to specific views.Save this picture!© Tomás RodríguezSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Tomás RodríguezGiven the use requirements and site conditions, the houses are laid out as an isolated volume, with a square plan and centripetal distribution, with fire as the unifying element and center of the project. Each 18m x 18m square plan is divided into 9 squares. The middle squares form a cross, which is used as one open, continuous, flexible and shared space. At the center is the chimney, hanging from a double height with lateral skylights. This way the stone and steel artifact is transformed into the main element of the house and a space in itself, which is shared by the different activities of common living (eating, cooking, living, playing and circulating).Save this picture!SectionsOn the other hand, the corner squares have lower ceilings and serve as more private spaces for bedrooms, bathrooms and facility areas. The position of the square plan is determined by cardinal direction, setting the open space cross as a wind rose. This way sun enters the open space and transforms it during the pass of the day.Save this picture!© Tomás RodríguezLastly, the cross space opens visually and physically to four roofed terraces in each of its ends. This way the exterior is incorporated into the common space as well. Both houses are identical in distribution but vary in its finishes according to the personal requirements of each family. Save this picture!© Tomás RodríguezProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Waterfall / BIG + CobeUnbuilt ProjectSharing Your Home with Strangers: What Does the Future Hold for the Co-Living Craze?Architecture News Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Tomás Rodríguez+ 16Curated by Danae Santibañez Share Architects: Olimpia Lira Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeOlimpia LiraOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFutronoChilePublished on March 27, 2018Cite: “Twin Houses / Olimpia Lira” [Casas Mellizas / Olimpia Lira] 27 Mar 2018.
