Felipe Campolina is an architect, who had an idea to create a tiny refuge home for those who just want to spend a weekend outside the big city and its noisy atmosphere. This micro-habitat is 40 square meters, where large windows have been installed so that visitors can have a nice view wherever they are. The side facade is highlighted by the structure rotated at 45 degrees from the floor in a triangular shape which also gives good stability to the building. The triangular size expands the house in height instead of length and makes it a lot easier to transfer from place to place.
Concrete was used for the lateral closures to make the construction stronger
This system proposes a mixed use of technologies using industrial processes and traditional masonry work
The ground level in 27m2, with the upper floor being 13m2
This type of construction could be used as a large commercial / housing complexes in an urban scenario
The two floors are connected through a ladder
The large windows offer great views from both floors
The light colors of the house make it even more hospitable and cozy
The bedroom even has a balcony
For this micro-habitat the team and Campolina proposed a fast construction system, using prefabricated blocks associated with small sections of steel that organize the main structure like a large truss. The result of their work is this small, but very cozy home that can welcome anyone who just wants to get away from their hectic city life and spend some carefree moments.
