The cabin is designed to be easily constructed on site and duplicated in the forest. The white pine CLT serves as both the primary structure and the interior finish. The design allows the construction to have zero waste and the factory treated CLT to have longer life expectancy than normal wood buildings.
As if growing out of the soil, the footing and heating structure is built with rammed earth. To recess and blend in, the secondary structure is paneled by reclaimed woods. To enclose and protect, the cabin wears a thin layer of galvanized steel, weathering together with the forest.
The cabin is constructed with the highest precision and craft, so it ages slowly with grace. It grows out of the woods a century before, and it will perish within the forest another century later. Wood is its spirit and time is its best friend.
