Perched on a clifftop along the Chilean shoreline, this residence by architecture studio L2C forms part of a self-sustaining community that produces its own energy and water, and deals with its own waste. A 90-minute drive away from Santiago this single family home, along with other wooden cabins and concrete houses, is just 50 metres above sea level. “Big and small, all (houses) share the tranquil and simple lifestyle that characterises this unique getaway location,” said Lipthay. “The disconnection from mainstream civilisation makes Tunquen an eco-friendly self-sustainable community”.  Quiet, peaceful and with astonishing views of the Pacific Ocean, this is how can someone describe this countryside residence.
