I stumbled across this from our friends over at Materialicious, It’s a “Log Home” haha get it? Ba-Da-Psssh – Clicky Okay corny jokes aside, the aesthetic of this is a really interesting collision of rustic extreme meats modern extreme. With all walls except the one being entirely made of logs, I love the look!
It also brings about an interesting point. Many of us want to take our tiny homes to a wilderness setting, an area that is untouched, that hasn’t been ruined by McMansions. With the logs being on most of the sides, the house can easily blend into the natural surrounds. This idea is interesting because you are minimizing the impact, not as we normally think of it as in renewable resources or recycled products, but in terms of Nature’s aesthetics. You are essentially able to keep what we find so great about a forest intact even with placing a house in it.
The Designers website is in French, but here is what it roughly says when I ran it through a translator:
Flake House, house wandering with the road gauge, is conceived to equip the places where it fails and to thus transpose them in strange vision. A “madness” which Marie skilfully “low tech” and “high tech”. The treatment of this poetic shelter is connected more with one object found than with an artifact. The madness is presented in the form of a cast solid building, monomatiÃ¨re (natural wood) broken in her center. This definite irregular break the sequence of entry and delimits space serving as been useful space. The interior treatment of the madness contrasts with the irregularity of the made exterior facade of logs. This space is punctuated random openings arranged between the logs of the walls.
