Built into the cliffside of Los Arcos, Chile, Casa Till is a small and eco-friendly house by WMR Arquitectos. The single-story construction was made from locally sourced pine by local workers. An environmental powerhouse, the home runs on solar and utilizes every inch of its structure. The design boasts roof access, a wrap-around porch, and sliding glass doors that make the stunning view visible even from interior. The timber roofing the porch is set so that light comes in from above, and the porch is lined with half-height glass barriers. Despite the openness of the architecture, the house cannot be seen from the road and offers utmost privacy. Photography by Sergio Pirrone
