The Rayograph

Reuse to Live

Juan Luis Martinez Nahuel created this house in Chile using materials from other structures. The glazed doors came from a 1960s Horacio Borgheresi house, while the eucalyptus and rauli parquet floors originated in a Larrain, Swinburn and Covarrubias house from the 70s. Steel and laminated beams were taken from a temporary exhibition.

    I like its simplicity and the concept of re-purposing material from the homes of others..and its cool that it ws from specific ‘others.’ Ilike the small size and outdoor living space. It’s a bit boxy but I love the idea and would like to do somehting like this in the furture.
