Klotz describes several small projects he has designed in Chile near Santiago: the Klotz house, the Ugarte house, the Muller house, and the Reutter house. All the houses have a simple rectangular massing and a simple interior circulation. They also typically contain large balconies recessed into the massing to take in the spectacular sites. A lot of the houses appear to float on their site since they are elevated off the ground.

Klotz describes a several larger projects his firm has designed in Chile. For the Colegio Altamira in Santiago, Klotz devised four long rectangular buildings with a central yard, gymnasium, and auditorium. A hotel connects the massing to the landscape with a long terrace, like one of his residential projects. He also describes a building for processing and storing wine, and some bus stop designs.
