Sun, Trees and Comfort Rule At the MIL Metal House

If you live beside a forest in Santiago, Chile, you likely want to stay cool during those hot summer days, but you also don't want to be pumping the AC all day long, nor do you want your house to stick out like a sore thumb. Luckily, the MIL Metal House by Max Ibañez and Claudio Iabarca addresses all of those concerns while still providing a stunning home with ample natural lighting and spectacular views of the forest.

By insulating the walls, using cool wood, metal and concrete for building materials, stretching the roof to provide extensive shade and adding a reflective coating to the windows, the house beautifully fits in with its surroundings all while providing natural comfort to its residents.
