the ‘hermit’s house’ by daniel venneman and mark van der net of the cloud collective, is a garden retreat that serves as a lounge, guest room and exhibition space. with its jagged shape it distinguishes itself from its surroundings while the interior remains usable, flexible and intimate. with a kaleidoscopic experience of light, reflection and views the design not only offers a rich inner world but also a fresh look at the wide area.
the design was partially prefabricated and then transported to it’s location, a garden located in the floodplains of the ijssel river near deventer in the netherlands.
the project was constructed with a minimal amount of wooden, built out of panels that are prefabricated. as the standard dimensions formed the starting point of the design, material use, transportability and its economy were optimized.
