On the coast of Chile is a pair of beautiful cabins built to embrace the natural surroundings. The La Loica & La Tagua Cabins are named after a native species of bird and are anchored to Lagunilla Hill. Situated on top of a wooden pilon, the cabins are built vertically in order to keep the footprint small and minimize disruption on the terrain.
The exterior is clad in reclaimed oak, which plays well with the coastal landscape. The interior is draped in pine-lined walls, offering a warm and welcoming aesthetic throughout the living spaces. The bedrooms are located in the loft, providing unrivaled views of the area. The kitchen and dining area, as well as the other living spaces, are below.
The interior is flooded with natural light thanks in part to west-facing windows. Views of wild sea lions living on the Lobera rock formation add even more charm to the two cabins. To further connect the structures to the natural surroundings, terraces expand the ground floor with an open area overlooking the Pacific ocean. Simply stunning!
