Architect Gonzalo Mardones Viviani has built a villa for tennis champion Marcelo Rìos on the hills above Santiago de Chile. His design focuses on use of materials in relation to light. The large ceramic floor tiles are consistent with the concrete surface bleached by the action of titanium dioxide.
The MO house in Zappalar (Chile) has made Gonzalo Mardones a finalist in the fourth Next Landmark international contest held by Floornature. Mardones seems to tame concrete in the MO house and integrate it into the landscape to form a belvedere.
