Cabin 192

And that decision comes prior to the project.Having then made the decision to readapt a construction, the search was oriented towards a structure that was as basic as possible, which would allow a certain freedom for a programmatic readjustment. An existing house was then chosen, made up of a pure brick volume with a gable roof, with a 9 x 9 square geometric plan, and two adjacen... More
