A leftover R.C.C. slab on six concrete columns were used as the structure to form a cabana; Bed space and wash room were managed within the slab area. A deck on wooden structure was attached as an over looking balcony to harmonize with the surrounding landscape. Existing trees and boulders in this slope site were the key elements which supported to create organic pathways leading to the cabana.
Entire design process was limited to quick site sketches and applied through an enjoyable site practice rather than wasting time on drawing detailing. Friendly Team work at site; incorporating client, architect and sensitive local craftsmanship pushed the design beyond its expected limits through a unique architectural process.
