CASA ANTI-HURACÁN

ANTI-HURICANE HOUSE, ISLA DE PROVIDENCIA

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

This proposal is set after the contingency of hurricane IOTA, which deeply affected several settings of the Caribbean and especially the island of Providencia. This project -as part of our recurrent collaboration with Sergio Trujillo Arquitectos– proposes a low-budget house for rapid construction, which utilizes efficient and ecologically-responsive materials that can eventually respond well in the event of another hurricane. Through its different operable components, its inhabitant not only would be able to change their relationship with their environment but, similarly, they allow for progressive growth and expansion for alternate economic or social activities. This typology is foreseen to be autonomous in terms of resource provision and waste production, yet it incentivizes rich social interactions beyond itself.
