Casa Ojalá is a small circular house – in fact, it is a super modular structure that can be organized in many different ways. Italian architect Beatrice Bonzanigo of IB Studio designed this luxury cabin to promote tourism in nature-immersed destinations. With this design, the boundaries between the interior and the exterior blur in a more organic way. “Casa Ojalá is a new accommodation experience. The one that immerses guests in the surrounding nature, free from technology, but without lacking the luxury and comfort of an exquisite design and quality craftsmanship in every thoughtful detail”, they say.
As sustainability is another important aspect, the cabin includes fabrics made from recycled plastic, integrated photovoltaic panels, a rainwater recovery system and an advanced biological sewage treatment plant. With these features, it is easy to install even in the most remote locations.
Another fundamental element is that each Casa Ojalá will be built with local materials, reinforcing the ties with the space and cultural roots of each place where one of them is built. The idea is that IB Studio would provide the central structure, base and mechanical system, but everything else would be manufactured locally with a model and construction manual. Thus, each model will be unique, although all cabins have two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchenette, a living room and a terrace.
The project was presented at the Milan Design Week 2019. Since then, “it has gone from a visionary project to a large-scale production to meet the growing demand of customers”, they say.
