Secluded Timber Cabin on Stilts is a Creative Escape for Writers
For writers, it’s important that they sometimes escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and focus on their craft. The Hut on Stilts was built with this type of creative getaway in mind. Designed by architect Nozomi Nakabayashi, whose client is a writer, the eight-square-meter cabin stands four meters above the ground and among secluded woodlands in Dorset, England.
Nakabayashi’s timber structure is split into two levels and uses reclaimed telegraph poles as its stilts. The interior is minimalist and includes a few necessities: a wood-burning stove, a writing desk, and a bed hidden beneath the floorboards. Because it has a modest quantity of furnishings, it’s only intended for a night’s stay, and for its guests to be completely undisturbed during that time. This also makes it the perfect setting to foster creativity—a nearby lake, passing wildlife, and starry night skies are fantastic sources of inspiration.
