In a world where foreign tourism is rapidly growing, and people are more interested in connecting with nature every day, Rojkind Arquitectos has developed an innovative way of vacationing and establishing a relationship with the natural environment. The Mexico City-based innovative firm has designed ‘Wander 2.0’ for people living in the cities seeking a place to reconnect with nature. It is a modular and prefabricated structure resulting from the partnership of Rojkind Arquitectos, Wander, Amasa Estudio, and TUUX. Wander 2.0 comes in three different forms with pyramid shapes.

Michel Rojkind, Principal of Rojkind Arquitectos, said, “it is time to rethink our relationship with nature and with ourselves. we are convinced that through the collaboration of talents, we can expand the wander experience achieving even more focus on design, sustainability, and community impact.”
These prefabricated cabins are created to supervise several aspects that are complicated and sometimes impossible to manage in conventional construction.
The project ensures taking care of all crucial factors such as quality of execution, waste management, efficiency in using resources, and environmental respect of the processes to fortify the sections it will serve.
What Does it contain?
The cabins consist of a living area, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. The ground floor contains the common and service areas achieving maximum flexibility through the furnishings placed there, while the double-height private regions lie on the upper floor.
The upper level is topped by a triangular roof which gets a height of 6 meters.
The prefab structure design allows the articulation of volumes that can sit independently or in conjunction with other components.
The project is planned as an irregular hexagonal structure, uniform from the central axis, from which two vertical walls are taking place on the sides and a rear one that lets connections with other parts.

The triangular roof of the structure stands on these walls and intersects the cottage at its apex where the main facade starts, adhering to the single triangular glass element that allows a stunning view of the environment. The same design pattern repeats at different levels with different orientations for remarkable results that can be modified to different topographies and climatic conditions.
