The beach house sets off from the reuse of a fisherman’s hut located on the dunes.
The intervention transformed the cabin, from a space for storing fishing equipment, into a refuge to contemplate the ocean, gaze at the maritime desert and turn one’s back on urban movement.
For the rehabilitation, we used biodegradable materials and natural thermal insulation from the region, respecting the character of the existing huts on the site. The furniture is designed for the space and extends along the wall, transforming into a table.
On the outside, the project crosses over with Sigurd Lewerentz’s project Boat House for the Canoes, and on the inside, the spatial organization of the small space is inspired by Le Corbusier’s cabin.
