Wonderful Cabin Surrounded by Thick Vegetation

By • Apr 25, 2018

This project, designed by the architectural firm of Lorena Troncoso Valencia, is located in the area of Pinto, Chile, an area recognized by tourism in extreme high mountain sports such as sky. It was carried out in 2016 and has an area of 105 square meters.

Views of the snowy mountains

The area has a lush vegetation of native trees overlooking the Andes; in the center, there is a small ravine with a depth of 15 meters, on which the project is located. The cabin is posed in an asymmetrical triangular shape in its upper part, inspired by the iconic shape of the mountain that can be seen behind. You can also observe from its terrace the landscape of the ravine in its maximum splendor.

The project is conceived as a large space with two levels, communicated with each other by a double height and a bedroom area on the first level. In the central space, we find the kitchen and living room that is connected spatially with the second level bedroom and at the same time this is connected through a bridge with a desk area. All these spaces are projected towards the main terrace that looks at the ravine.
The window of the main façade is retracted diagonally to generate shade during the period of greatest sunlight.
The glazed walls welcome the abundant foliage of the trees inside the hut, fusing the exterior and interior.
