Project details

Oak cabin /


The Oak cabin was designed to act as a off-grid bolthole and incorporates various green technologies. The frame is made from green oak and the exterior is clad in charred cedar (shou sugi ban), this protects the wood from insects and helps the cabin settle into the landscape. The interior is clad in a mix of lime washed oak and ash, a compact kitchen with exposed copper water pipes divides the space. Theres a mezzanine that can sleep two more and a covered outdoor deck to sit and unwind.
