Located in the forest between Araucarias and Oaks, in Chile, this beautiful cabin was built in 2013 and it was designed by MC2 arquitectos. It occupies a total area of 48 square meters and it has a beautiful contemporary design. The location in wonderful as the cabin has easy access to the ski resort.
The cabin was intended as a winter retreat and thus is features reduced dimensions. It’s a serene and tranquil refuge and a great place from where to observe and admire the nature. The design is simple but eye-catching.
The cabin is shaped like a slightly inclined prism and it’s oriented north, overlooking a small waterfall. The north-oriented facade features a large window/glass wall. Throughout the cabin there are also a series of smaller and strategically placed windows which allow ventilation and focus on specific views to be admired from each angle.
The exterior is painted dark brown, a color similar to that of the forest trees which allows it to blend in and disappear into the landscape. The interior only has one space of generous dimensions. It’s a warm and elegant room and the separate attic spaces serve as bedrooms/sleeping areas. Outside, an elevated wood path offers easy access to the cabin and stays above the accumulating snow.
