At first glance, Casa Pollo looks more like a rundown barn left to the caprices of dereliction, but upon closer inspection, the cottage is so much more. Though it does indeed make use of rusted, worn down materials, Casa Pollo does so in the name of environmental friendliness, recycling older materials to create something new and modern.
The building, which serves as a holiday home for a family, sits on the edge of an estuary that flows into the Caicawe Canal. It bends along with the shape of the coast, making the internal space lively and dynamic. Likewise, the life and wear visible on both the rusted corrugated aluminum exterior and the wooden beams on the exterior lend to that feeling of variance and excitement.
