Architects Alejandro Soffia + Gabriel Rudolphy named this handsome pad in Chile the SIP Panel House for a reason, to make SIPs (structural insulated panels) the stars of the show. They say it required just 10 days, 71 wall panels and 40 split-level panels to build. SIPs have been heralded by builders for their energy efficiency and ability to reduce build-time, but you need no little about the selling points to appreciate the good looks of this modern dwelling which offers an ocean view to boot.
