This Mountaineer’s Refuge is a small cabin was designed as a retreat to rest and reflect for those traveler and mountaineer’s.
Designed by Gonzalo Iturriaga Arquitectos, the Mountaineer’s Refuge set in Santiago, Chile, this small cabin is a mountaineer’s refuge; a sanctuary getaway after the trek it apparently takes to get there, making this space both a shelter and the ideal shut-in.
The project brief was for a small cabin with a roof, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom – the necessities for resuming the mountain trek begun the day before.
The exterior is enveloped in pine, metal elements and picture windows that perform both structural and volumetric functions, the exterior of this space is exquisite, and nearly falls into the landscape from certain vantage points.
