Barcelona-based studio MuDD Architects combines digital fabrication and impressive workmanship into building an evocative sanctuary for a writer of children’s books.
The quaint 27 sq.m. cabin, found in Madrid, also serves as a testament to the affordability of digitally-fabricated structures, and displays its versatility in the hands of an accomplished mind. Fabricated glass walls set against a thin oxidized iron frame opens up the cabin, putting the surrounding beauty of the garden in full display.
This also makes the main feature of the house fully visible — a curved bookshelf snaking its way against one side of the cabin, making its way from the floor to the roof. Made of raw pine (a lighter tone than the maple wood accents), the shelf counterbalances the weight of the high roof, and provides a stunning contrast to the rigid frame of the cabin. Simple furnishings round out the design of this simple yet stunning house.
Built as a place where one can draw inspiration, the Writer’s Cabin’s innate connection to its surroundings, as well as the playful interplay between the grounded and the imaginative, serves as the perfect place for ideas to be born.
