2900m above sea level in the Andes, located new Mount Aconcagua, Chalet C7 is Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez‘s breathtaking creation. Tucked away into the hillside and overlooking a stunning lake, the chalet has been design to minimise interference to the view, while making the most of surroundings for its own residents, C7 is protected against fluctuating snow levels thanks to a ground floor constructed from local rock, anchoring the construction to the mountain.
