The exclusive panoramic cabin, Maralah

The exclusive project conceived by LAAV Architects is a concrete overhanging booth called ’Maralah’ (which in Native American means: he / she who was born during an earthquake).

Name chosen as a tribute to the history of the specific area where the structure will be erected: a native American reserve. The "Maralah" project was developed under the guidance of laertis-antonios ando vassiliou in collaboration with the added architects, (argyris chronopoulos and dionysis koutsioumaris).

Maralah is an isolation cabin, the perfect retreat for a weekend away from the city. An architectural tribute to the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright and John Lautner. The structure is partially submerged in the ground, partly cantilevered over the cliff with a spectacular fully glazed bedroom, which frames the breathtaking view of the river. The cabin is quite small, 45 sqm with an extra 20 sqm as reserves for water supply, toilets etc. The shelter was designed to be constructed of rough concrete, glass and opaque black steel. The bedroom is located 6 steps below the kitchen / reading area together with a bathroom with opaque glass and a walk-in shower.

The shape of the Maralah is square, but with the rotation of 45 degrees it reaches a dynamic relationship with the cliff and the ground and appears as if it had been merged into the environment during an earthquake, just as it describes its name.
