Simple yet Sophisticated
Thoreau’s cabin located in Utrecht, the Netherlands, is a chic park model or better called a unique and modern shed-style home, which was previously used as a storage shelter. Now it serves a much larger and more important purpose: as a private relaxation space for the tired volunteers that work in the maintenance of the Noorderpark. Check out these photos!
Sited in the 5900 acre Noorderpark in Utrecht, the Netherlands this cabin provides a warm and dry escape for wet and tired volunteers that maintain the park. The 35 m2 cabin replaces a 1966 storage and break shelter for park maintenance, and was built without permit as it maintained a similar size and function. Hidden in the forest and covered by lush foliage, the volume has been shaped so that it reveal its presence only at the very last moment. Two large sliding doors open up the entire corner of the building blending the interior with the surrounding open space; a little green meadow where sheep graze to keep the young trees at bay.
