Pura Vida Cabañas in Chile

© Sergio Pirrone

The brief for Pura Vida Cabañas by WMR arquitectos was to build a set of cabañas for a couple of surfers and musicians, with the main cabaña as the house. The driving idea behind the project was to generate semi-buried volumes placed at the start of a steep cliff, to achieve a sense of vertigo on the terraces. The visual focus and orientation to the west lies on the same axis as the cliff, with views framed by the surrounding hills.
