Prefabricated refuge in the wild Uruguayan landscape: Retreat in Finca Aguy
Our article of the day aims to present you one of the recent achievements of Mapa Architects, namely the project Retreat in Finca Aguy. It is a modern prefabricated refuge, which has been anchored in the wild Uruguayan landscape. Present in Brazil and Uruguay , the architecture agency in question proposes projects on various scales, which remain rather unconventional for the architecture of the two countries of Latin America. Established in Pueblo Edén, Uruguay, their latest production Retreat in Finca Aguy perfectly embodies this philosophy.
Contemporary prefabricated shelter by Mapa Architects
The architects of Mapa Architects have shown ingenuity in successfully registering the prefabricated shelter of 115 m² in its unspoilt wilderness. The choice of prefabricated construction was not done by chance. The goal being to minimize the impact on the site, the house was built 200 km away, in a factory near Montevideo. As the architecture agency explains, his credo is to respect the original state of wild landscapes, which explains perfectly his choice of prefabricated. Prefabrication dampens the impact of construction in the field and minimizes waste and displacement: the perfect balance between nature and industry.
Prefabricated construction: the perfect balance between nature and industry
Regarding the design of the prefabricated shelter that we are discussing in our article of the day, it is the warmth of the wood that leaves its mark on the style of the facade as well as on the interior walls and floors. The spaces are refined: a winning approach by BoConcept, aiming to enhance the landscape and leave room for contemplation. Retreat in Finca Aguy is an eco-responsible, intelligently designed and aesthetically-finished contemporary prefabricated shelter.
