BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE

When it comes to building types bound up with fantasies of retreat and restoration, the non plus ultra has to be the cabin. 

Le Corbusier's iconic 1951 Cabanon in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin may have long entered the architectural imagination as the archetype for minimal, away-from-it-all living, but a number of recently completed projects internationally show how there's plenty of creative mileage left in small-scale architecture for splendid isolation. 

Boots mandatory. Rifle optional.

RUN TO THE HILLS!: NEW CABIN ARCHITECTURE 
Text: Simon Keane-Cowell

Trying to square your new year’s resolution to get out more with a desire to get away from it all? Your cabin waits...

Geopolitical turbulence isn’t the half of it.


Factor in the increasing stress levels that attend modern urban life, not to mention winter and its vitamin-D-stripping cruelty, and you’d be forgiven for wanting to seek out some splendid isolation. Man, nature, and a whole lot of wood.

Architectural grandee Le Corbusier understood how the simple life could achieved in built form when he designed his Cabanon – the minimal-is-beautiful, programmatically perfect holiday cabin on the Côte d’Azur, which, 65 years after its construction, still serves as a creative touchstone for micro architecture today. (The design process was, allegedly, diminutive too, taking under an hour.)

N°35: CLAESSON KOIVISTO RUNE
 
Swedish trio of architects Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune apply their creative skills not only in the designing of buildings, furniture, lighting and smaller objects, but also in the development of accompanying business processes. 

Architonic met up with the multidisciplinary architecture and design studio to dip a toe into the nordic design landscape.

Mårten Claesson: Wood perhaps. After all, we are from Scandinavia. We are pretty accustomed to working with wood. It has a kind of warmth.

Eero Koivisto: I am a little bit excited about concrete right now. I like that it is a very plastic material that allows you to create different shapes.
