MINIMOD CATUÇABA is a primitive retreat with a contemporary reinterpretation, which more than an object aims to become an every-remote-landscape experience.
MINIMOD presents an alternative to traditional construction: based on prefab plug&play logics, it incorporates the benefits that a newly-born industry has to offer. Quiet but not shy, its unique-in-Brazil CLT Wood-Technology combines industrialized products`efficiency and new technologies` sustainability with the sensitivity of the natural material par excellence.

PHYLOSOPHY – BE GENTLE WITH NATURE
Traditionally, the designer sees building (architecture) in terms of its aesthetics, siting, spatial utilization, form, structure, building elements, use of color and shade, and other usual features of architectural design. However, the ecologist sees building in the context of the ecosystem concept. This means that he or she conceives a building as consisting of not only the a biotic (non-living) components but also the biotic (living) components, all of which operate together as a whole system in the context of other ecosystems in the biosphere.

To dwell in this vast land, men and women build graceful stone structures along the roads in Atacama, to get an insight into nature, and make it hospitable.
These concrete landmarks in the landscape, reveal the presence of water ponds used to irrigate the land, and to swim, and open up new perspectives to the immense wilderness around.
The water is kept still flowing gently over the ponds edges to reflect the light, and the beauty of the place, against the dark slate coating.
