A small stone cabin | Northworks
Northworks Architects and Planners designed this stone building for use as a guest house, giving it the simple gabled shape and lean-to front porch of a classic cabin. A set of French doors takes you from the porch into the small cabin. At one end is the full bathroom with its barn-style sliding door. At the other end is the kitchen, flanked by a pair of closets. The remainder of the 350 ft2 (32.5 m2) space is a combined sleeping and living room.
The interior is lined with reclaimed pine on the walls and vaulted ceiling, giving it the woodsy feel of an old-time cabin. Juxtaposed with that is the kitchen, made entirely of stainless steel in clean, modern lines. Another finish you wouldn’t expect to see in an old cabin is the polished concrete floor. Yet all the materials work together, complementing each other rather than clashing.
There are also surprising material choices on the exterior. They blend in so well that many people wouldn’t even notice that the porch is supported by galvanized steel columns and beams. As well, there is a pair of very industrial-looking bulkhead light fixtures mounted on the wall.
Have a wonderful weekend!
