This is a small, 27 sqm house with more than 1,000 interior solutions working in synchrony without ever changing the original structure and shape. Casa Ojalá develops from a manual mechanical system composed of ropes, pulleys and cranks, bringing the guest back to the memory of a journey on a sailboat pushed by the wind.
Wood and fabrics recall the traditions of the place where Casa Ojalá stands, highlighting its uniqueness and aesthetic adaptability, while remaining a formally recognizable, globally marketable object.
Casa Ojalá is a sustainable, minimal, compact and flexible product for a new comfort, away from TV or air conditioning. 
It was first developed as a by-product for luxury hotels seeking new solutions for a travel experience and a different life, avoiding construction sites. Casa Ojalá can also be offered to private customers with land of any type, vineyards, open countryside, mountains, lagoons, woods, meadows, sand dunes, infinite or uncultivated land.

The boundary between inner and outer space no longer exists

Outdoor is a substantial, fundamental and precious part of it

Home is an intimate hot bath, recognizable perfumes, private logic, comfortable bed, safety. But when it becomes a House it is also forced views, filtered light, controlled air and untouchable canopy. Walls decide for us what to hide, or where to walk. Windows decide for us how much sunlight we should get, or how much wind to feel. Doors are open, or closed, and our only way out. Roofs protect us from the rain but keep the stars away from us. Furniture occupies a fixed place, most of the time, taking away from us some precious surface.
Landscape is commonly acknowledged as House’s worthy opponent, even if it’s our Home.
Casa Ojalá embodies the potential of a step forward: definition of Home is kept safe and elevated. The House becomes extremely flexible: we can adjust it according to our mood, the weather, or the activity we are doing. Every few minutes we can decide whether to have an open living room or an enormous bathroom, hide ourselves in a cozy bedroom or immerse our thoughts in the infinite landscape.

Modular

It is small, it can be disassembled and is not bulky.

Highly Flexible

The home becomes a surprise, a game, a circus, a theatre, fragrances and gestures.

Inhabiting The Infinite Choice

In continuous evolution

The limited space converts into an infinite home.

One of a kind

The tiny house that doesn’t exist without its inhabitant.

Perfect harmony

Wood and fabrics recall the traditions of the place where Casa Ojalá stands

A global approach

A new discovery in the world of static architecture. The landscape is its façade.
