CABANA wooden suite
Architects: Atelier LAVIT
Year: 2019
Area: 25 m2
Location: 07839 Es Cubells, Balearic Islands, Spania
Cabana is a hidden private room nested in the bush of residential area Es Cubells, along the west coast of Ibiza. The suite is an annex to the main villa and represents a refuge for the owner and his guests looking for a more essential and primordial experience.
The architecture is designed according to island’s climate. Facing south and overlooking the valley and the sea, the roof and walls have been oriented so that the inhabited volume and outdoor spaces are al-ways naturally shaded. The different densities of the vertical wooden screens around the hut guarantee the privacy of its occupiers as well as sheltering them from the sun and the wind.
The interior space as well as the exterior are therefore protected from the sun thanks to the pergola over-laying the terrace. The entire reflection was brought to the geometry of the roof, the pergola, and the glass surfaces, resulting in a luminous and naturally ventilated environment both day and night.
