Pael House by Pezo von Ellrichshausen Architects

The Chilean architectural office of Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen has decided to test the archetypical features of the suburban house – the result being the Pael House in Concepcion, Chile.

As was the case with other local residences, the project called for a big house in a plot that was, in theory, too small for it. Moreover, the brief stated the building must ‘look like’ a house, so as not to upset its neighbours.

The architects decided to create a structure with a silhouette of four pitched roofs, suggestive of a naïve drawing that a child might do.

The last of the four blocks does not have a base and is cantilevered over the little remaining space that the neighbourhood square offers.

The façade of the house is made of prefabricated, pigmented concrete elements.
