Small prefab guest house

The small prefab guest house was positioned strategically so that it would separate and organize functions that are different by their nature (access to the beach, original building, car park) and handle the diversity of its surroundings (garden, beach, meadow). The 42 sqm small prefab guest house was constructed with a manufactured prefabricated wooden frame and assembled in one day.
