The unique design brings two homes under one massive roof, catering for a large family, and features beautiful cream roller blinds. The two-storey gabled frame is clad in blacked timber and has a matching roof. The Shotgun House (the linear design takes cues from American “shotgun houses”) was built in a small town just south of the Chilean capital called Los Maitenes.
Designed by architect Alejandro Soffia, the long narrow building take cues from the popular South American “shotgun homes”. This particularly strange name comes from the idea that if you stand in the front door aiming your shotgun through the house, you could shoot through the home directly into the back garden. Weird.
On the outside, a narrow deck runs along the side of the building tying the two homes together. Large window spaced at regular intervals along the facade take advantage of the views of the arid mountain terrain.

Inside we go from dark to light. White-washed pine dominate the interior and creates the feeling you are inside a luxury mountain lodge. The rest of the interior is sparsely decorated to keep the focus on the dramatic views out of the large windows.

Cream roller blinds hang above the windows fulfilling both form and function. Made from blockout fabric, these cream roller blinds help regulate the internal temperature by blocking out the heat from the desert sun. They also roll away neatly giving full access to the view.
A bedroom on the ground floor features two bunk beds that are made of lightwood timber, matching the light palette. Again cream roller blinds are used to shelter the room from the harsh desert sunlight and roll away neatly, giving full uninterrupted access to the door.
