Volume Zero: Tiny House Competition

        CasaCafé is an architectural design created to address the needs of young couples in tropical countries who acquire small plots of land in the mountains to revive local coffee farming. These individuals require a home near the farm and a space where visitors can experience coffee tasting.

        The design of CasaCafé responds to these requirements by adapting to the sloping mountain topography, offering ease of transportation and construction, and providing a versatile space that serves both as a home and a coffee tasting area. Inspired by the traditional houses of coffee workers from the 18th century, CasaCafé offers a practical solution for new, young farm owners.

         The construction of CasaCafé incorporates prefabricated lightweight concrete modules for the base, along with metal studs and a zinc roof. The use of concrete is crucial in tropical climates to manage humidity effectively. The modular design facilitates transportation and construction, while the staggered layout allows for easy adaptation to the sloping terrain and offers panoramic views from all areas of the house. Furthermore, the staggered design creates storage spaces for the bed and dining table.

          CasaCafé is a versatile and adaptable space that serves as a coffee-tasting room during the day and transforms into a comfortable home at night.
