YOD design builds timber cabin with panoramic windows in ukrainian forest

marking the studio’s latest development in the poltava region of ukraine, YOD design has completed ‘guest house 3.0’ in the verholy relax park hotel complex. the new intervention, which is nestled among the pine trees, is envisioned to embrace the natural environment, resulting in the ideal place to enjoy a rested vacation. with its secluded setting, the cabin offers guests privacy and silence, with only the sound of birds in the forest.

the guest house is characterized by the use of timber and panoramic glazing, which together effectively reflect the surroundings and make the building appear as part of the forest landscape. the design by YOD also incorporates a large patio space that blurs the boundary between the indoor and outdoor environment. inside, the interior is defined by natural colors and tones. wooden surfaces cover the floors, walls and ceilings, extending the forest atmosphere and creating a warm, inviting place to stay. the floor tiles are also equipped with water heating, providing a more efficient, radiant heat.

the primary structure of the guest house is constructed from a lightweight metal frame. rather than the typical solid base, the building sits on a so-called ‘screw base’. this technology allows the structure to be set among the pines without damaging any trees or their root system. the volume also stands one meter above the ground, which helps towards waterproofing the cabin by preventing water ingress. the ‘screw base’ elements and elevation of the ground floor also makes the guest house appear as if it too is growing in the forest, like the tree trunks that surround it.
