The Shell Cabin

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The Shell Cabin is based on the shape of a typical marine shell (SUNRAY VENUS). In the concept, 2 shells are used, one as a cover and the other as a base. This cabin will be sustainable for its location on a key. Its design will provide the necessary comfort for tourism standards. The base of the cabin is comprised of an inverted position shell serving as a large base which will provide what is necessary for its sustainability in isolated areas.This has a small relaxation pool, a drinking water reserve and an area for accumulators for electric energy produced by solar panels. The central core of the cabin will comprise the room and living room. The roof will be in the shape of a shell with a hole where you will have access to a viewpoint to enjoy the sunsets.
