Fábio Galeazzo designed the Contemporary Hut in São Paulo, Brazil.
Description from the architects:
This work intends to value handmade work and sustainable construction, expressing in that a true way of living that starts with primal references mixing it with the contemporary tendencies of living, which integrates values from yesterday and today through a future view.
Having that in mind, the project proposal transcends the common sense, aims to be timeless and try to bring to the public ideas of comfort and welfare into a digital and speeded up world, in order to increase human contact.
The HUT was built with a handcraft technique using autoclaved bamboo and overlayed with piassava straw (brazilian natural fiber) and the floor is made of certified wood . Its unusual shape with a five meter headroom surprises, inviting the visitor to enter and be received by a living room.
Connecting the internal and external area there’s a 60m² space of especially drawn decks inspired by woof found in baskets of brazil indians tribes. In that area coloured mattress were scattered and in the center its found a firepit made of soapstone.
The decoration is a compound of natural textiles like cotton and rough wood furniture. A highlight is the Wester armchair by Hans Wegnerque, which with a smooth design grant sofistication to the set. Nine pending made of straw fill the high headroom turning it into a cozy place.
Beyond beeing sustainable that kind of contruction ensures a good thermal protection, in summer the place is cool and in the winter its warm and safe from wind.
