metabaukunst's reclusive getaway cabin in the US is clad with charred timber

metabaukunst’s ‘studio’, located on an open field in the forests of vermont state, USA, is a reclusive space to think, paint or write, that offers protection from and exposure to nature at the same time. planned to provide a getaway for writers and artists, the cabin is clad with charred timber and can entirely open up to the hilly green landscape, while its interior is as white as an empty canvas.

the concept of metabaukunst’s studio picks up and enforces the transition from the protective pine trees towards the wide opening into the landscape. the spatial experience creates a continuous balancing act between the perceptions of being lost in nature and being protected by a defined architectural framework.

the two entrance doors on the southern corner let every visitor decide how the space should be entered. behind it, two doors lead to the mudroom with a shower and two long corridors to the main space. the sliding doors can be moved to different positions depending on the weather and needs of the occupant. the built-in sideboards serve as daybeds, worktables and storage space. — from either sideboard, a table and stool can be removed and placed freely in the room.

the simple materiality and its little processing reflect the basic and handmade quality of the space. the door handles and their simple lock are handcrafted by a blacksmith, the interior cladding and the built-in furniture are made of rough sawn timber, the floor was poured as part of the foundation, while the exterior facade was clad in weather-proof burnt accoya.
