Textual content description supplied by the architects. A cabin stands on the sting of a hill overlooking the valley of Cota, a municipality within the savannah of Bogotá, at an altitude of 2566 meters above sea degree. The home finds its origin within the story of one other in-built 2007 in Sisga, which served because the founding challenge of our workplace: a butterfly-cut cabin constructed with the selvages discarded by sawyers when reducing down a pine forest. The vocation to dispense with the pointless is the frequent thread that connects the questions of then with these of now, and as an entire with that appreciation of the primitive life that’s within the promise of inhabiting a cabin.
The home is located in entrance of a physique of forest that protects it from the winds coming down from the east and extends in an orthogonal quantity oriented in direction of the west and the distant views. The undulation of the terrain dictates that the utmost care is taken to rise on stilts.
The areas are concentrated in a molded bar with actions that outline the inside consolation and the connection with the speedy floor. On the ends, the bedrooms finish in packing containers that include the closets offering privateness and depth to the modulated picket home windows, which owe a lot to Japanese structure.
Within the center, the lounge, eating room and kitchen come collectively, extending like a field on an out of doors deck that floats on the steepest level and provides a visible dialog between the inside and the altering climate of the panorama. Between the lounge and the main bedroom, a small ritual is well known with the transit by a hall that cuts by the quantity, refined by the presence of a cover of Chinese language acacias framed by the east and a desk contained inside the ensuing courtyard. The gabled quantity with eaves on the ends is redefined by the anomaly of a double-height cylinder in uncovered brick that gravitates with one other weight and offers root to the lightness of the picket field. It additionally articulates the doorway with the transition by the vestibule, hiding a tank towards the bottom.
The cabin is a sort of reverence for the pure world and, from there, for the supplies of the constructed world. The annealed clay roof tiles replicate the coppery hues of the sundown, whereas the inside trusses of tecumanii pine are displayed between white partitions that know easy methods to replicate their shadow. Within the phrases of the Smithsons: “this specific dealing with of supplies, not within the craft sense, however in its mental appreciation, has at all times been current within the fashionable motion, and has definitely been one thing recognized, what’s new about it’s that it finds its closest affinities not in an architectural model of the previous, however in conventional however by no means trendy types of peasant housing: a poetics with out rhetoric.”
The spirit of the supplies is manifested due to the palms of the foreman Arbey, who is aware of like nobody else the fabric from which this mountain is made. The train of inhabiting is felt within the heat of life given by María, León and Anabel. Daniel Molina was the architect in cost, and Mateo Pérez was behind the lens of those September images.
