Doubling as both a home studio and a lavish residence architect Maria Jose Trejos ensured that it offers all the comforts of a lovely modern home even while cutting back on construction cost and energy needs.
The cantilevered cabin has a footprint of just 200 feet and yet offers a living space of spread across several levels. Its uncomplicated design coupled with adaptable features turn it into an absolute delight!
Connected with the rear garden and pool deck this sunken level also blurs the boundaries between the interior and the backyard and seems like the perfect place to host a great summer party. A small barbecue area and a lavish outdoor court add to the ambiance of this interactive zone.
The interior of the home embraces a similar color palette dominated by white and several shades of gray even as gorgeous wooden surfaces usher in the necessary warmth. The ground floor contains the living areas divided into two zones with one facing the pool and the outdoor dining space while the other is tucked away neatly towards the backyard and serves as a ‘winter hub’.
Crafted from eight large shipping containers in is one such green home that charms with its unique aesthetics and ergonomics. This ingenious home was designed by architect Maria Jose Trejos and it also doubles as a spacious workplace for its owner who is a professional photographer!
Supported on four steel beams the three levels of the cabin offer wonderful views of the surrounding landscape from their elevated position. The lower level is used as a carport and a utility room while the top level features the large living area with kitchen and dining.
Some of these panels open up revealing sliding glass doors that act as an interface between the living area and the landscape outside. The design of the interior itself is simple and contains a small living area with a kitchen in the corner. A double bedroom and a bathroom complete the smart home.
