Ever imagined yourself living in a forest with tall trees and a rock cliff around your house? This may not be your kind of typical home right? Well, that is unless you are living in Lago Ranco in Chile. The house that we will be showing you features a glass-enclosed bridge that connects the house and allows it to blend in with the surroundings it is in. The orientation of this house is amazing and the Ranco House is lucky enough to have this incredible view of the forest and the sea beneath it. The existing rock cliff was like a decoration wherein the house was able to adapt totally to it.

If you will be seeing the site development plan of the Ranco House on the website of the designers, you will notice that the house is divided into two entities. This was done to avoid intervening to the natural condition of the landscape of the site. To connect the two parts of the house, a bridge was added in the middle to connect them, making sure that they are going around the rock formation in the middle. Since Chile has a lot of shingles and wood, the designers made use of these materials in building these home. Take a look at the picture below so that you know what we are talking about.
