The perfect minimalist cabin

This beautiful minimalist cabin, exudes elegance despite its modest and unassuming materials. It is a ‘one room’ floor plan, with spaces defined by various functions such as working, sleeping, and eating. There is a loft which takes advantage of vertical space, and provides an element of privacy. I especially like the furniture collection. Vintage finds, but not your typical and expected faire. The bucket chairs above, by Walter Knoll are highly collectible, and work beautifully as a sculptural element in the understated environment.

The cabin was built with paneling on the interior as an environmentally friendly alternative to gypsum board. Natural lighting is maximized and controlled for direct gain through clear glazing, as well as a diffused effect with the use of polygal panels, which are durable and long lasting.

The modest footprint lives large due to attention to daylight, the flow and the function of space, minimal and light framed furniture, and the clean, uncluttered, design aesthetic. I’d like to move right in.

    Wonderful spaces created with the simplest materials…great design. There is such reward in finding a retreat to retreat to.
