Cabanão

Cabanão hides the intimate illicitudes, from the boldest to the most naive. Childhood fantasy; make a hut to play with the doctors. Has this primitive side, essential. We work with raw matter, minimal things, a single tonality and yet sensuality can overcome the simple domain of essence. On the outside, the formal construction archetype responds to an immediate message; the allusion to the cabin, rudimentary tent, shelter, play house… The project works from that recognizable form, intimate; a pitched roof covering and two walls in the tops. But that triangular prism deforms, more possibilities open in foreign relations and anticipate the spatial ambiguities that develop in the interior. We continue in the domain of the cabin’s imagery, but transformed into the most personal.
