Two South American architecture firms, Max-A Arquitectura and Arquitectura del Paisaje, collaborated on Casa Tobita, a holiday home that features modular construction. Casa Tobita is a single-story cabin located in Chile that has a long, angular layout with a dark, modern finish. To minimize the environmental impact, Casa Tobita is slightly elevated off the ground and made with locally sourced materials like Montery pine. The local materials, alongside the modular construction, reduce both construction costs and building time while making the project eco-friendly.
Casa Tobita is made up of two separate wings set at a 30-degree angle to each other, which are adjoined by a pair of doors. One side contains the primary living spaces including three bedrooms, a kitchen, and a dining area, while the other side hosts additional living spaces for visitors. The modular layout of Casa Tobita is adorned with architectural details such as floor-to-ceiling windows, keeping the cabin feeling unique and looking contemporary.
