The hermitage cabin, designed by llabb, is a space of contemplation and reflection. Isolated from the world, it overlooks a still wild valley, secluded from everything. We all need a bit of that from time to time.
The cabin is defined by wood panelling, vertical and horizontal lines that are tuned in a thin yet clear equilibrium. The hermitage is a hybrid of a Japanese tea house and a Scandinavian cabin giving it a minimalist charm and aesthetic. It seems to recall the use of materials typically used in architecture, like metal facades and beam structures, reinterpreted through the use of wood.
The project was realised in two weeks by the studio team to deepen compositional themes and to transmit the “design with your hands” approach to the studio.
