Text description provided by the architects. The commission is for a meeting place, for sailing, and kite and wind surf, on a site with perfect conditions for these sports.

The idea seeks a shelter in this climate that is very austere, extreme, with strong, cold winds. The project achieved three climates: inside it is 100% closed, another intermediate and another open.

It is a waterfront retreat generating a backyard connected to the front thanks to the skeleton-like structure which allows shelter. Allowing to have a space for people who accompany and do not participate in the wind sport.

The dock like circulation achieves the travel between the sea (wind) and the backyard, which is protected from the wind (outdoor shelter), allowing to have a fire pit area outside.

The wooden structure as a skeleton is the support for different skins, textures, shadows and lights.

It was designed in a 3m x 3m wood module where the structure (pillars and beams) are exposed. The structure was impregnated on the outside with carbolineum (black color) and wall linings in dark brown. The ceiling is made with eucalyptus poles, exposing the wooden beams in black.
