Step inside this cool cabin and you find a small living area a surprisingly spacious dining area that is the heart of the home and a small kitchen in the corner.

Originally built in the 1950s subsequent additions to the home and poorly thought-out changes made the a cramped and congested space. Its latest owners called in Wasserfall Munting Architects to renovate and revitalize the home giving it a glittering new lease of life!
With steel mesh panels obtained from old security and fencing solar water heating and passive design principles the innovative residence does the best it can to. On the inside a double-volume living area with a butterfly roof is the heart of the house and leads into an expansive terraced patio with an alfresco dining space and lovely views.
The house uses some conceptual premises as defining elements such as a large podium in contrast to the steep terrain. The elevated views over the natural environment change the perception of the environment as the water feature visually merges with the sea. In this way the archetypal images of the island are assimilated and reinterpreted retaining their language and proving timeless. Time seems to just stop when you gaze out the windows.
The gorgeous backyard of this exclusive residence offers ample privacy thanks to the natural canopy that surrounds it and yet doubles as an ergonomic extension of the living space inside. Designed by Taller Estilo Arquitectura the chic house is spread across two different levels and is crafted to suit the specific weather conditions of the region.
Ample ventilation illuminates the spectacular living area with a vaulted roof and wooden beams as 52 windows surround the space! A trolley found at the local flea market doubles as the coffee table while custom pendants give the large dining area an aura of its own.
The result though is an innovative home that borrows from the architectural principles of Mid-Century Modern design to steal the show with its distinct façade and breezy interiors. A cheerful welcomes you into the house that features an ergonomic open-plan living space.
