Single Story Retreat in the Woods

Single Story Retreat in the Woods

19 November, 2013  |  Exterior, House Interior

Organic textures and a very delicate treatment of light shape the way that the interior of this house resonates. Thin slivers of wood have been conjoined to form highly textured walls, braced by natural wood ceiling beams and accompanied by wicker chairs. A thick, slightly curved tree log acts as a support pillar. Just above the pillar is a skylight, resting on an upward angle. Bright beams of light come flowing down into the room in patches and broken shapes. Although oversized windows appear on each side of the house, cool shadows can be seen throughout. A small, intimately arranged backyard patio is just a few yards away from a still lake. The owners of this house may only come to visit on occasion, but any time spent inside can feel like being in another space and dimension. Designed by Mette Lange Architects.
