Throughout history, shelters have been spaces where people seek protection and hiding, also a place of isolation. My proposal seeks to reclaim and reconcile those primitive ideas and present ones, to create a space for relaxation and reflection, an escape to the reality. The design reinterprets ideas of ancient buildings, for creating a shelter that meets the climate, kept simple, and harmonize with the environment.
