This retreat house was designed using strict classical proportions and motifs in a contemporary manner. The concept includes a one-story, eco-friendly, low-maintenance, natural-lit, and space-efficient design. The interior provides plenty of open space, while the rustic materials lend to the feel that a cabin in the woods should have. The home will feature just enough space to be comfortable for the owners to share by themselves, or to invite family and friends. Stone columns support a "living roof", which will help the structure blend seamlessly into it's wooded surroundings. The River-side facade opens the interior spaces up to expansive views and natural light.
