The Saint George´s College is located at the foothills of Cerro Manquehue, in the neighbourhood, Santiago de Chile, in the middle of a forest that is maintained thanks to the microclimate of a place enclosed under the hill. This school, designed in the 70's by the architect Gustavo Munizaga, responds to a campus typology, with programmatic volumes scattered among the trees, covering the entire terrain and having the hill always present as a backdrop. The original idea takes the option of streets, hallways and squares, where circulations and volumes that compose the classrooms are arranged at the height of the trees foliage.

|Lauriston House / Seeley Architects|

A deep engagement with the expansive and undulating rural context of the house was the starting point for the design of the Lauriston house, with a design response that simultaneously buries into and leaps from the hilly landscape near Victoria. The geometrically aligned rows of olive trees set against a voluptuous landscape evoke a quiet, unspoken tension. The house mimics this tension with the relationship of a meticulously detailed and structured frame against a seemingly effortless floating, sinuous roof. Inspiration for the material palette was taken from local materials and textures. Messmate timber linings follow the twists of the expressive ceiling, complimented by wide Messmate flooring and French pattern bluestone inspired by the colonial footpaths of Piper Street in nearby . The home respects and enhances its environment, offering prospects of retreat and respite, an evocative place for gathering.
