“La Cabane” is a 10m2 urban habitat for one person.


Its dimensions are 3,5m x 2,6m x 2,3m.


It contains:


-1 bed (120x200cm)


-1 wardrobe (70x60cm)


-1 worktop (280x60cm)


-1 shelf (40x200cm)


-Additional closets under and over the bed


-1 night tablet


-1 shower (80x200cm)


-1 folding sink


-1 WC


-1 closet for dirty clothes


-1 closet for bathroom items


-1 mirror (80x230cm)


-1 bin


-1 kettle


-1 doormat


-1 turntable


 


Walls and roof are built as wooden frames assembled on site by 2 workers.


The whole envelope rests over the remains of an old water storage unit built on top of the roof of a building in Barcelona’s city center.  


3 openings bring light and ventilation to the cabin: the main door, the window next to the bed and the bathroom’s skylight.


Mirrors reflect these openings. They broaden the perspectives, erase the limits of the box. .


The plywood panels create furniture and organize the strips of the interior space of the cabin.


A translucent curtain allows to expand the bathroom-shower, temporarily borrowing some space from the central corridor.


Light and views are regulated by rolling screens inside and by sliding doors and blinds outside.
