Designer Fábio Galeazzo turns an abandoned old hut into a modern artistic home. His Urban Cabin is an interesting example of sustainable cabin design.
Located in sunny São Paulo, Brazil this small cozy building creates its own atmosphere with its new exterior and interior treatment.
Rich color palette in Urban Cabin Design
The roof of the cabin is covered with green thermal tiles to protect it from the heat. The existing structure of the building is not able to hold the new load and so it is replaced with a sustainable bamboo framework. The small size of the cabin and its wooden construction make it merge with its natural surroundings and remain unnoticed. Designer Fábio Galeazzo wants to avoid this lack of individuality and creates an outstanding sustainable cabin design. That is why he turns the façade and the interior space into art exhibition. The walls are painted in many differently-shaped geometrical figures in various colors filling the ordinary building with liveliness and excitement. The wall-paintings are inspired by modernist artist Tarsila do Amaral. The bold façade of this sustainable cabin design is complemented with a nautical fabric stretched outside the hut over the car parking area. There is also a barbeque area in the back. It is connected to the swivel kitchen which can be used both outdoors and indoors.
Bold colourful interior in the sustainable cabin design
If this artistic cabin looks like an art gallery piece among tall green vegetation from the outside, its interior is even more exciting. It has similar concept to the façade and also some additional features that complete the atmosphere of this sustainable cabin design. The inside of the building consists of a single space treated with a lot of color and vast use of wood. Some parts of the walls are treated like the exterior ones and others – in single color. Most of the furniture is oddly shaped in an artistic way. The whole place is richly decorated with various objects all in the spirit of art as well. The individuality of the living space in Fábio Galeazzo’s sustainable cabin design revives the single space housing idea in a modern innovative way.
