Prefabricated Cottages that are put on the terrain with the aim of transforming the land as less as possible. In it’s design special attention was given to sun light and cross ventilation to avoid the usage of mechanical systems to achieve thermal and luminance comfort.
The Cabins have a rainwater collection system which stores and treats the water for the re-usage in the cabanas. Water from the network is only used in case this supply runs out . This avoids the over consumption of a resource which is rare on the Island.
Hot water comes from solar heating tanks to the solar panels located on each cottage’s roof, avoiding the use of gas or electricity (which in the island is generated from petrol) for this purpose. Location: Isla de Pascua, Chile
