Despite their apparent simplicity, small cabins have always been a welcome design challenge, where scale and materiality had to be geared toward getting the maximum benefit from minimal spaces. Situated on a steep slope, this project sits harmoniously within its surroundings and embeds itself naturally into the terrain of the Rhine Valley. The compact and simple structure is used by the client as a barn and storage space for landscape equipment. The façade has been clad in different lengths of leftover material contributed by the client, who supplies the staircase industry. The sophisticated solution and materiality lend a special atmosphere to the building and its surroundings. In addition to the exciting design, we were also able to make a positive contribution to the issue of sustainability.
