The orientation of the building along with the arrangement of the rooms inside has been carefully planned to make the most of the view on offer while maximizing privacy. Unassuming décor crafted in locally sourced wood and modern aesthetics complete this unique cabin designed to serve the homeowners for generations to come.
The private top floor holds two bedrooms and bathrooms that provide spectacular views of the Pyrenees and the countryside. An unassuming wooden staircase with glass railing divides the home into two identical halves and ushers in a sense of symmetry and curated elegance.
On the inside an open-plan living area filled with a fabulous bookshelf featuring translucent glass doors and a relaxing daybed in Baltic birch steal the spotlight. Custom wooden shelves coupled with the concrete flooring provide textural variance even as one room flows into the next.
