The 'Kusy Kawsay' wooden studio cabin is a stylishly functional architectural achievement in rural Ecuador that takes the landscape into account along with local resources to create a truly impressive structure.
The cabin translates to "passionate life" from a dialect of Quechua called Kichwa that is used in the Andean region, which is quite suiting given the aesthetic of the building. The structure is achieved using the local Bahareque building technique that includes weaving sticks and mud in order to create sound-proof walls that allow music to be played loudly without disturbing those nearby.
The 'Kusy Kawsay' wooden studio cabin is the design work of student David Guambo who studies at the Universidad Tecnológica Indoamérica (UTI) in Ambato, Ecuador and acts as a dedicated place for him to get work done.
