THE WOODLAND CABIN / DE ROSEE SA
Designed and built by London based practice De Rosee Sa, the cabin is located on the edge of woodlands outside the village on Nouvelles, in Belgium. With a brief from practice director Max De Rosee's father, on whose land the cabin sits, for a new multi purpose structure - timber milled from surrounding trees was used, creating an economical, lightweight and simple building, that was nominated for an AJ Small Spaces award.
I spent a day on site in autumn 2015, capturing both a full set of stills and a short film, showing the cabin in situ. Although the weather during the day was terrible, with no sun what so ever, I was lucky enough to catch an incredibly bright full moon with clear skys, allowing for some long exposures to create some fairly magical images. The imagery helped the project gain coverage in, amongst others - the Architects Journal, Dezeen and Arch Daily. For more by the architect see their website at: www.deroseesa.com
