La Cabana de Resurrecion by Jorge Yulo is among the shortlisted entries for this year’s #INSIDE2021 Festival Awards, where the world of interior design comes together to recognize and celebrate the best interiors of the year. The submitted designs for restaurants, office spaces, homes, hospitality, and retail establishments will provide fresh inspiration for interior designers of all tastes and styles.
Jorge Yulo is no stranger to the INSIDE World Festival spotlight. His design for the restaurant, Mecha Uma, was shortlisted for the 2015 competition. This year, Jorge Yulo’s love for all things Japanese is once again apparent in his entry for the category of Residential (Single Dwelling). La Cabana de Resurrecion is nestled within Calamba’s gently undulating terrain. The area is known for its mountain views and secluded resorts that feature pools fed by natural hot springs. The cabana is largely open to the outdoors, with its L-shaped structure enclosing a pool landscaped by trees, grass, and gravel, and dotted with traditional Japanese stone lanterns and tables.
Low-pitched roofing produces a sculptural wood ceiling, which shelters a minimalist yet versatile interior layout. The furniture is positioned to facilitate both intimate rendezvous and group gatherings, with luxuriously padded low armchairs, sofas, and a long dining table. The residence is a reflection of its environmental context, minimizing decorative elements to allow the unembellished beauty of stone and wood to dominate the view. Jorge Yulo has created an imaginative sense of warmth and closeness in an expansive space, by staying true to his aesthetic of nature and minimalism.
