 Architect Mariano Ravenna reinterpreted the archetype of a sloped roof cottage with House JG, a tiny cabin located just a few miles from the idyllic Chascomus Lake in Argentina. 

Contrary to woodland cabins that aim to blend into the landscape, House JG is a departure from the norm, staunchly asserting its presence with a playful sloping shape and shiny exterior. Materials were chosen to render the home more sustainable: a low-maintenance steel sheet coating protects the house thermally, and its slanted form helps in the collection of rainwater, which is stored in a tank for gardening needs. 

The inside of the cabin is displays wood interior that give a sense of warmness and coziness to the space. Paired with double height ceilings and a mezzanine, the cabin seems bigger than it is. The red trim framing the windows and doors add a pop of color to the home, underlining the funky character of this charming dwelling. Visit Ravenna’s Instagram for more.
