Although interior design events in Latin America are always full of huge museum rooms thought for impossible houses, it's good to see the trend of small spaces popping up in places like Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo.

This 600 sq. foot recycled cabin by Brazilian designer Fabio Galeazzo presented at the last edition of Casa Cor Sao Paulo is another one of such spaces, and presents some very cool features.

Asked to make use of an old cabin that was already at the city's Jockey Club --venue of the event--, Galeazzo decided to retrofit the place adding a new, visible bamboo structure both inside and outside the place (photo above).

He then sought to create a space that had the simplicity of traditional cabins with some of the comforts of modern living. Named 'Urban cabin', the space has only 600 sq. foot, but thanks to a clever blending of outdoor and indoor space, it looks bigger.

One of the most interesting elements of the place is the prototype of a revolving kitchen that allows the user to cook and attend guests both in the dinning room table or in the outdoor patio.

Although the piece of furniture is only a prototype, looks pretty big, and is not entirely functional, it's an interesting turn on the subject of re-thinking the kitchen.

Even though the designer didn't necessarily got rid of the bed, he blended it in using Dedon's nestrest (first picture).

Usually advertised more like a chilling area for luxurious outdoor spaces, this piece makes sense here not disrupting the living room with a bed room or a bed. Frankly, also making the space look a lot more fun and cool.

The space makes use of responsible materials such as wood from sustainably managed forests and furniture from designers such as the Campana Brothers.

Although the chances of living in a cabin in the city are pretty narrow, the space has some neat ideas to pick from.
