Tiny Cabin en las Eólicas

Best Implemented Project of Private Residence

About the project
The project was comitioned by a young couple, who were looking for a cozy refuge to spend their weekends with their children. The property is located in the mountains, in the central valley of Costa Rica.
As a design team, we proposed a project with simple geometry and discreet materials, but at the same time very honest.
We made a contrast, using dark elements on the outside and wood inside the building, generating a warm atmosphere on the inside.
An important guide for the design was the balance between a sheltered space, which at the same time enjoys the beautiful views. We achieved it through the windows of the social area and the mezzanine, which frame the view, while integrating the exterior and interior.
