Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECT:
This suspended cabin had to balance comfort and compactness. We opted for a linear volume so that we could place it with freedom within the existing column grid but also as a way to counterbalance the reduction of the living area; the length of the cabin compensates and decompresses the compactness allowing the writers to transit through different situations: cooking, eating, and sharing. Structurally the cabin is just a very efficient and simple slab that supports both the living space on top of it and the hanging system of the existing canopy. We introduced a pivot and a lateral force to stabilize the system, but also as the way to provide access to the cabin and allow all the services to reach the ground.
