FINALIST
CBS - Cork Block Shelter
Designed by David Mares

From: Setúbal, Portugal
Shelter location: Portugal
Date accepted: August 18, 2009

CBS is located at Vale dos Barris. It was designed to be an ecological and living block. In a microclimate that ranges from the dry heat to damp cold, the application of cork is a good way of thermally isolating the shelter and also providing acoustic insulation for study/sleep. The dynamic facade gives visual interaction when in living-studying mode; in rest-sleep mode it closes to provide privacy for its occupant.
