It is a place of ancient trees and difficult access.The project is located in a forest clearing in order to avoid interfering with existing trees, an element that defines the length, width and height of the volume.Save this picture!Cortesía de MAPAHabitabilityFrom the commission of building a shed arises the problem of how to inhabit it, understanding that it is a single undivided space. We propose the construction of spaces differentiated by lower volumes containing the various program requirements, which in turn are able to differentiate the temperatures necessary to inhabit them, obtaining different areas that are climatically controlled.Save this picture!Cortesía de MAPAThis led to three types of spacesVestibule space, mediating between interior / exterior. It can be used as a terrace in the summer, opening its doors and allowing cross ventilation. It can also be used as a hall in winter, behaving as the first barrier of climate control.Common area, living / dining / kitchen, which takes advantage of the full height of the building, establishing itself as a mid temperature space.Save this picture!Cortesía de MAPAPrivate space, bedrooms and bathrooms. With low ceilings and openings controlled by their orientation, in order to achieve thermal comfort.Form / ShedsThe study of forms arose from the observation of wood sheds in the area, which yielded as a result the following set of rules:The idea of ​​working with closed volumes, without eaves and with controlled openings, wherein the roof is constructed first to protect from the weather, and then the interiors are built.Save this picture!Cortesía de MAPAOne form within another. As a result of building the roof as the first action, the idea arose of ​​organizing the program through smaller volumes within the overall volume. For this, we chose to build two smaller sheds inside the larger one, which grouped the bedrooms on one hand and the bathrooms on the other. These differ in color and materiality from the rest of the construction.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessA Year Without OscarArchitecture NewsTunnels Under London: the Largest Infrastructure Project in EuropeArchitecture News Share CopyHouses•Chile MR House / MAPAA Year:  Architects: MAPAA Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Chile Save this picture!Cortesía de MAPA+ 24 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Projects CopyAbout this officeMAPAAOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodChilePublished on December 04, 2013Cite: “MR House / MAPAA” [Casa MR / MAPAA] 04 Dec 2013.
