Tucked away in the mountainous landscape of Pinto, Chile, the PV Cabin is a refuge for rock climbers. The small shelter is situated in a clearing surrounded by trees and a towering rock wall. Perched on a foundation of wooden stilts, the structure is raised above the ground, safe from the winter snowfall. The open interior is clad entirely in wood. Although just a single story, its double-height gives the illusion of space and allows for a lofted bedroom. A wall of glass floods the space with natural light while also connecting the inside with the neighboring forest.
