Timeless Mountain Cabin Uses Local Materials To Blend Into The Landscape
Designed to occupy the smallest possible surface in order to have as little impact as possible on the land and to show respect towards nature, this mountain cabin stands between existing oak and copal trees and coexist with a rather rugged landscape. The cabin was designed by LAMZ Arquitectura in 2018 and is located in San Sebastián Teitipac, Mexico. It has a quirky design and it’s been built using local stone and stone which gives it a timeless and authentic look, allowing it to seamlessly and naturally blend in with the landscape.
The 185 square meter industrial cabin is organized into two volumes connected by a steel and glass hallway. One of the volumes is a public space which houses the living room, kitchen and dining area while the other is a private space containing the bedrooms. There’s a big difference between these two volumes in the sense that one feels very open and has a direct relationship to the environment and the views and the other has more of a cave-like appearance and is designed to prioritize privacy.
