'Casa Pollo' Is An Eco-Friendly Home Built From Recycled Materials

By Brian Spaen

Off the coast of Chile and in the Pacific Ocean, Chiloe Island harbors a unique home that’s made out of reclaimed building material. Casa Pollo was created in 2016 by Ortuzar Gebauer Arquitectos. Made mostly of zinc plates and reused wood, the large structure aims to adapt to the land surrounding it.

Casa Pollo is a welcoming home with its open design that fuses indoor and outdoor activity. It’s located right along the edge of the Caicawe canal, offering incredible views from its beautiful timber deck. This is accomplished by making the entire facade facing the canal completely open for the inhabitants.
