Built in 2009, La Baronia House floats above a vast open ocean, thus named after an ingenious species of butterfly. Often considered a modern masterpiece of Chile, this structure needed to be stronger than most around it since it was built into a Quintero, Valparaíso region hillside.

The harsh elements of the ocean, including the salty sea air, are extremely corrosive to most building materials. Thanks to a predominantly opaque outer envelope made of two corrosive resistant materials, glass and weathering steel, this structure remains sealed in the harshest natural elements of nature.

Because the architects Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez agreed that this project needed to be done on a budget, they decided that the interior would be represented by beautiful natural wood accents and large bay windows representing the ocean appropriately.
