Santiago, Chile, has a particular neighborhood in which old trees grow. One of the projects of 57Studio was completed here, and called the Fray León house.

The architects suggested to the client a modern white house developed around a native Peumo tree. An Avocado tree is present along the hall of the house, but there is also a Cypress tree in the picture. In the north of the house there is a specially designed terrace that opens to the garden.

Light colors were chosen for the outside of the house to emphasize the colorful green garden of trees. Inside, most of the furniture and ceilings are made of wood, but this is only to beautifully accentuate the view to the spectacular garden that can be seen through the large glass windows.
