In an attempt to keep out all that noise and pollution even while giving those inside complete privacy architects came up with a distinct wooden façade that features a curved wall along with a series of other small wall-like sections.
Complete with a kitchen spacious living room bedroom and bathroom this is not just a shabby little hangout where comfort is sparse. Stunning views of the landscape are combined with coziness while the prefabricated nature of the structure ensures that the scenery around the retreat is left completely untouched. The best part of it all is that one can easily relocate the entire home by disassembling the unit if and when the need to move arises!
At one end of the house lies the bedroom with the other end containing the social zone. It is the kitchen and dining unit along with a relaxing living area that occupy the two central units. Striking that perfect balance between gorgeous views and complete privacy smartly placed windows along with sliding glass doors open up the house towards the captivating natural scenery outside.
Designed and brought to life by MAPA this fabulous prefab sits 125 miles away from Uruguayan capital of Montevideo and fits in seamlessly with the stunning mountainous backdrop at its splendid best! Nestled on an isolated lot in this fascinating retreat is all about ease elegance and eco-friendly panache.
A smart platform provides solid base for the home and is integrated with the living room fireplace chimney and the concrete seating next to it. The platform extending beyond the confines of the living area acts as a natural patio and connects the interior with the outdoors in a seamless fashion.
On the inside it is white that takes over from gray which dominates the façade with wood and different shades of gray playing second fiddle. A series of terrariums pavilions and terraces bring in plenty of natural light along with large framed glass windows that offer a constant glimpse of the ever-changing sights and sounds outside. Cheerful inviting and cozy this is a summer home that makes the most of the unique site it sits on.
The open living area with kitchen and dining extends into the modest private courtyard which ends up becoming the gathering spot for friends and family. Interesting wall art pieces pops of orange in the dining area and a hint of greenery outside provide pops of color with tall wall shelves offering ample storage space. A clever transformation that preserves the historic past of the revitalized garage!
