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.
