Wall House

The Wall House, by FAR frohn & rojas architects, has four “delaminated” structural layers: a cave-like concrete core; an outer ring of shelving; a “soft skin” of polycarbonate panels and a fabric membrane. From the inside out the layers build upon one another, both materially and geometrically, blurring the boundary between the interior and the exterior and creating, through the specificity of the different materials used (many of which are not common in architectural applications), a series of qualitatively distinct environments. You'll have to visit Santiago, Chile to see it.
