Sometimes all we need is to spend or weekend in a remote forest cabin, and the one we are sharing today is an ultimate dream. Measuring 84 square meters, this Cabin on a Rock home was designed by I-Kanda Architects in the woods of New Hampshire.
The cabin is a family getaway surrounded by evergreens, with a mound of bedrock supporting the unit as a timber porch cantilevers over its slope. The house has a pre-manufactured timber frame that was delivered to the site. The cabin has strong geometries, and is clad in black metal and timber to accent its varied lines.
There’s a rectangular outdoor deck that leads to the main entrance. The small footprint dictated the number of rooms, and led to a lofted area overlooking the home’s main living space. Inside is a sitting room and kitchen, which features items like a built-in cabinet and refrigerator, and a wood-burning fireplace.
Past the sitting area is a covered timber porch that looks out towards the valley. The room faces east, allowing in morning sunlight from a 24-foot-long sliding glass wall. Behind the kitchen is a bathroom, and steps leading up to the lofted area and a mechanical closet. Additional living space is created from two triangular decks that flank the house.
