Chilean architect Antonio Zaninovic worked with the owners, using the footprint of their small home to make one much larger. Re-purposed ceiling rafters, stone excavated on-site, and using the “bones” of the existing house mean that this home is not only beautiful to look at, it also meshes with the principles of sustainability that the owners hold dear.
