Cabaña Tunquen

DX Arquitectos as Architects

Weekend housing a short distance from Santiago and Viña de Mar / Valparaiso, however on a side road, wooded and often shrouded in mist.

 

In the way of the "cabanon" of le corbusier this cabin in the forest is considered as a refuge of habit, a place of recollection and contact with nature.

 

We wanted to play with the iconic image of the house, like the house that a small child would draw, establishing a formal tension between the object and its representation. The oversized openings and the demolition oak lining contribute to affirm this double reading, ironic and pop.


Material Used :

Metal and wood structure, wood cladding
