A Warm And Cozy Cube Of Isolation For Writing In The Wild

(via) We usually reserve architecture + design pieces for the SPACED column but this one room cabin in the woods of upstate New York is different. It’s bereft of plumbing and is used more as an adjunct hideaway (next to a larger house) rather than an address on its own. It’s basically just a box of mature oak logs leftover from the construction of the main house, its four walls set with bookshelves, a bed, a tiny desk, chair, a pair of windows and a wood-burning stove. So really it’s more like a functional possession, a device (fit for a Salinger) serving a singular purpose: the comfortable removal of self from distraction. Of course you could also use it as a guest house, I suppose, but that presupposes that you’re the least bit social. Designed by American firm Studio Padron, the minimalist retreat is called Hemmelig Rom, which is Norwegian for “Secret Room”.
