Caterpillar House: Contemporay Prefab Construction in Santiago, Chile

Caterpillar  House: Contemporay Prefab Construction in Santiago, Chile | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

This prefabricated house for an art collector and his family was built in the outskirts of Santiago in a new suburban residential area. In order to reduce construction time and costs, second hand shipping containers were used as follow: Five 40 “standard containers, Six 20“ standard containers and one 40“ open top container for the swimming pool.


The main purposes of the house were two: the first one was to integrate it to the territory of this part of the city where the presence of the Andes Mountain is extremely strong both visually and tectonically. The second one was to allow the external air to run smoothly and easily through the all house and its different parts In order to avoid mechanical cooling.

Critique: St James's Gateway | July 2013

Critique: St James's Gateway | July 2013 | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Beneath its colourful eyecatching ‘make-up’, Eric Parry Architects’ One Eagle Place for the Crown Estate is more than just a pretty face. It’s an intelligent and thoughtful building whose classical lines nonetheless speak strongly of modern design values
 
Words Eleanor Young | Photographs Dirk Lindner

Scored, sprayed and blooming with gross growths, One Eagle Place has the most beautiful facade. There are few architects with a track record like Eric Parry Architects for turning a standard, even banal, typology into something so special. His treatment of offices is not as exercises in net to gross but as individuals in an urban landscape.
