About the Proposal
The idea of an own space for relaxing and chilling was rouding the mind of PV and CM, Chilean couple travelling as a work and holiday schema in Australia, during their time there the couple decided to buy a piece of land in Santo Domingo, Chile ( About 2 hours from Santiago de Chile) After a few years of travels, and living in Caravans the couple learnt to live under just the essential conditions, under this premise, the Cabin is projected as a monolitic shape, considering an small but comfortable space for basic but multiple activities.
The floor plan is basically divided into two main areas: The first one an open space, contains the public zones of the cabin, a Kitchen and a Living, the last one is extended to a wooden deck which act as terrace, lookout and main entrace. By the other hand, the second space is the Master bedroom, a cosy space with it’s own balcony, in order to contemplate the hilly landscape, maybe reading or just smoking.
SIP panels were modulated to reduce non-essential tasks. A black zinc wrapper, covers the cabin, making a contrast with the dry vegetation and soil of the site.
