This pine wood home was created in Chacras, Ecuador by 'Naturua Futura Arquitectura,' a cultural management collective and community volunteers.
The home was built for a family who lost theirs during an earthquake in April. Once the design was proposed, networking spread the word until enough materials and tools had been donated to initiate the project. Built by volunteers who were trained for various construction tasks, this home is sits on a base of concrete and bricks and pine wood modules. The house was designed with a kitchen, living room, sleeping areas, a patio to encourage social interaction and a garden. Since the structure has no electricity, it was designed to be cooled with an elevated roof. Additionally, the pine modules that make up the home were designed to open like windows -- allowing for plenty of cross-ventilation.
This pine wood home project benefited a family in need while also setting a unique precedent for housing that is designed to encourage community interaction.
