providing a romantic and affordable retreat into nature these ‘hermit houses – model abe’ designed by daniël venneman and mark van der net of the cloud collective were named after the tragic lovers, aberlard and heloise. customized and mass produced the 14m2 huts were originally developed to provide a welcomed escape from the hustle and bustle of the oerol theatre festival, located on the island of terschelling, the netherlands. today’s couples are given the chance to enjoy the surrounding landscape and experience nature from within the hermit house. the unique concept allows for an easy installation, as these ‘out of the box’ buildings can be set up and constructed in only two days.
