  • Team: Carlos Ruiz Palomino, Alfonso Castelló, María José Galindo
  • Location: Popocatépetl, Puebla, México

This is the project of a tiny cabin on the outskirts of the Popocatepetl, in Puebla, Mexico. At just about 7.5 by 7.5 meters, the cabin has about 50 meters square. You enter it at a corner, next to the entrance a steep staircase serves as bookcase and pantry.

After entering the cabin you can either go down a couple of steps to the living area where a fire place on the corner is framed between big glass doors that with a view to the Popocatepetl, and a window looking out west forms a reading bench next to the fire. If upon entering you turn right you walk onto the kitchen and dining area with a windows lookin east and a small terrace outside. The full bathroom completes the scheme.

Upstairs there is a sleeping area with a terrace atop the bathroom.
