DX Arquitectos Design a Cozy Nature Retreat in Tunquen, Chile

Cabaña Tunquen is a home located in Tunquen, Valparaíso, Chile.
The home was designed in 2014 by DX Arquitectos and covers an area of 1,421 square feet.
Cabaña Tunquen by DX Arquitectos:
“A weekend house located at a short distance from both Santiago and the Viña del Mar–Valparaíso conurbation, erected on an often misty, tree-covered side road.
Mirroring Corbusier’s cabanon style, this forest hut has been conceived as a haven for routine, a hideaway place to get in contact with nature.
We sought to play with the hut’s iconic image by making it resemble a child’s drawing of a house, creating thus a formal tension between the object and its representation.
The overly large openings and the oak waste revetment assert this double interpretation, both ironic and pop.”
