Small, One Room Cabin in Massachusetts With an Impressive Layout

The Small House 01 Small, One Room Cabin in Massachusetts With an Impressive Layout

We ran across this ingeniously-structured small cabin, with a living surface of just 750 square feet (about 70 square meters) designed by studio Maryann Thompson Architects and located in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, USA. Despite its modest size, the small home accommodates a kitchen, living, dining areas and two sleeping alcoves and gives away a feeling of space. Here is more from the architects’ official project description: “The house also incorporates such commonsense sustainable strategies as radiant structural slab, which maximizes opportunities for passive solar gain through the broad expanses of glass on the south and east elevations. Natural cooling is achieved with the stack effect through operable skylights and ceiling fans”.

  2. [...] The house also incorporates sustainable approaches like radiant structural slab for passive solar gain: the south and east elevations have broad expanses of glasses to ensure this. The skylights and ceiling fans ensure natural cooling is achieved with stack effect. For adjustments and monitoring the home from a distance, the house employs a highly efficient remote- operated mechanical system that is used by the owners of the home. Looks like a very practical contemporary and useful design for a small home. [...]
