From a distance, this small house appears pretty straightforward. Cabaña Bascuñan has a simple shed-like shape with a roof that extends out to shelter the porch. But get closer and you realize that things aren’t quite as they seem. The gable end windows appear symmetrical at first glance until you notice that they don’t align with the peak of the roof. The roof has the usual overhang on one side but on the other side it folds down to form the wall. One window is recessed slightly; another protrudes from the wall. These and other unexpected elements enrich the experience of visiting the house.
