Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure. The statement proves to be correct as soon as you step in to the colourful and charming property of Uruguayan visual artist Jaime. Nested atop a hill in the heavenly island of Florianopolis in Brazil, Jamie built the ‘Cabana Floripa’ using material deemed as garbage by others. Most of the material came from homes that were demolished and included glasses, wood, pottery scraps and used bottles.
“I started building the home by intuition and an intention of giving a new life to old wood, glass bottles, ceramic tiles, broken mirrors and other garbage items”, Jamie explains.
Located on the north of the island, the Cabana Floripa overlooks the beautiful and glamorous Brava Beach. The cabin can accommodate up to 5 people and has a double and single bed on the lower level, and an extra double bed on the loft. It is equipped with air conditioning, a television, internet access, a kitchen and a bathroom providing all the comforts of home while being away from home. Available for rent via AirBNB, this eco-friendly holiday home is perfect for the eco-conscious travelers.
