Tirado Arquitectos completes timber-clad museum at colonial farm in Patagonia

Jun 25, 2018

The ridged roofline of this museum in Chile's Aysén Region references existing historic buildings on the site and creates a sequence of dramatic internal spaces with steeply sloping ceilings.

Santiago-based studio Tirado Arquitectos was commissioned by the regional government to develop a museum on the historically important site, where settlers established a sheep-farming community in the early 20th century.

The community grew into the city of Cohaique, which is now the capital of the Aysén Region and the gateway to some of Patagonia's most remote areas.

The historical significance of the site, and its remaining original buildings meant that an important focus of the project was the preservation and repurposing of these simple wood and stone structures.
