Crystal Tree Shack: A45 directed by Bjarke Ingels Group for Klein
Ideal for nomadic getaways in the forest, either as a couple or as a family, the cabin mentioned in our article of the day, is a housing prototype made by the architecture firm BIG, based in Copenhagen and New York . Called “A45”, the project represents a small cabin that has a lot to offer in exterior and interior design. The architecture of the cabin is inspired by the A-frame style , which is as aesthetic to look at as practical to adopt. The iconic triangle construction we are talking about facilitates the evacuation of rainwater while offering residents a maximum of aesthetics.
It is important to emphasize that the cabin is customizable and indoors, and outdoors, according to the desires of its future residents. In this way, “A45” can be built in any place and adapt harmoniously to the existing environment. And what’s more awesome is the speed of construction that, according to the architects, should take between four and six months at most.
Cork wall covering and solid parquet: an interior mixing atmosphere and design
As already mentioned, the most important attraction of the cabin is its architecture. The shape is strongly reminiscent of a crystal – a visual effect enhanced by the architects’ decision to install custom-made windows in certain areas of the façade, designed to reflect the surrounding nature.
Inside, the cabin has an area of almost 17 square meters, which offers a certain comfort to the one who finds himself there. The contact with nature is felt in every detail. The solid pine framework and the beautiful fir floor create a cocoon of warmth and conviviality that invites you to escape and relax. The cork wallcovering only enhances the feeling of harmony and warmth.
The use of wood and especially the choice of a cork wall covering, are a strategic choice adopted by the interior designers in order to recreate the magic of the hygge style and bring it in decoration. To create custom furniture, we favored cedar wood. The gasoline was used for the manufacture of the bed, storage and set of chairs and dining table.
The cork wallcovering is an effective natural insulation, which we see more and more often in various eco-friendly residential projects. Accessible to the great majority, the cork benefits from a range of characteristics among which are distinguished the resistance to fire and the wear, the thermal and phonic insulation and the rot-proofness.
Cedar wood paneling warms the interior
It is important to pay particular attention to the fact that the cabin is raised on four concrete pillars. The concept was not chosen by chance. In addition to ensuring optimal support, it allows to place the house where you want.
Cabin “A45” is an excellent example of the ingenuity of contemporary architecture that seeks to develop alternative and creative residential solutions. For obvious reasons, living on 180 square feet could not be an adequate solution for a family of three, four etc. This is an excellent example of a small weekend house or, why not, a guesthouse.
