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 Wegner which has a smooth design that 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.
