Cabin in the fields

Cabin in the fields

 

Garden and small pavilion behind the Dunes in The Netherlands

 

Connecting the landscape. Spacial integration between an allotment garden and the surrounding landscape.

Long sight lines connect you with the surroundings, and reuse of materials is letting this garden seamlessly slide into its context without experiencing any property edges..

Long lines in the surrounding landscape are incorporated in the garden. So the garden is one with the landscape instead of being alienated from it.

 

At the same time the long lines are sight lines on the landscape  with the trees and cabin framing the view.

Catching the beautiful view on the fields by opening up the cabin from inside. One wall becomes one big window.connecting the inside of the cabin with the landscape

 

 

 

Just rotating the composition of lines by 5 degrees changes the perception and steers the view a bit more to the view on the dunes behind the fields

 

The way toward the entrance defines a big part of the experience.

 

Not choosing the functional but the emotional approach enriches the whole experience

One connected architectonic object floating in spontaneous wild, native vegetation
