Home Tour: La Baronia House / Nicolás del Rio + Max Núñez

Sunday, October 19, 2014

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. © Erieta Attali 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 [...] more

"The architect wanted to make this house 'modern Spanish'—open and airy with really clean lines," says interior designer Kishani Perera . This metallic herringbone-patterned console was a flea market find. The Stedman Chandelier from Arteriors is made up of glass bottles, creating a dramatic opening scene in the entryway, considered clean yet retro with amazing contrast. “Some people are scared of color, says Perera. Michael's not, but if you are, you can still go all neutral, like this sitting room, and make it interesting by adding texture. A [...] more
