The best part about the cabin is undoubtedly the way in which it stealthily stilts and leaves a minimal eco footprint even as it offers a mesmerizing window into nature’s ever-lasting beauty. Owners of the cabin wish to ultimately turn it into a cabin that floats on water but even in its current version this woodsy retreat seems just fine to us!
Despite its warm and inviting appeal clean lines and modern silhouettes ensure that the exterior of the cabin presents a private and distinctly contemporary appeal. All the drainage and electrical pipes have been carefully concealed while a wall of glass opens up the interior to the lake and the scenery outside. A small kitchen dining and living area occupy the lower level with a mezzanine floor bedroom.
€ 12000 of the total budget were used to improve the energy-efficiency insulation and structural integrity of the old house while € 6000 went towards giving the interior a contemporary transformation.
On the lower level it is the double-height living area that steals the show with kitchen and dining on one side and an elegant sitting area on the other. Litecrete precast concrete panels and wooden ceiling and partitions offer ample textural contrast in a modern home that is both cheerful and polished.
