Demanding contemporary projects require hard work and brilliant ideas . La Dehesa House, located in the captivating country of Chile is a modern piece of fine architecture. The project, developed by the brave architecture company Elton + leniz Arquitectos Asociados , headquarted in Santiago, has been completed in 2011. La Dehesa House occupies  6.135 square feet of ground, being nothing less than imposing by its very own greatness in execution.

The project has been perceived as provocative, taking into account the large quantities of concrete and wood used for completing it. Surrounded by a green splatter of vegetation, the refreshing atmosphere is a pure delight for the senses. The front yard  is decorated with a geometric play of rectagular mazes that mix big blocks of marble with the delicate subtle shades of green grass. The home inspires a certain scent of coolness and that is definitely the result of the abundance of raw materials sprinkled all around. The use of natural elements highlight the need of man connecting to the environment. Take a look at the brick walls, the large wooden hallway at the top floor, which represents sort of a transitory area and picture yourself living there. Amazing, right?

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
