Hyper-Insulated Family Home On Farmland Built To Withstand Earthquakes

Large temperature difference between day and night, a region that is vulnerable to frequent earthquakes and its isolated presence on a large piece of rural agricultural land were the factors that defined the style and finish of Passalacqua Lahsen House in Colina, Santiago, Chile.
