Little Green Cabin: Modern Guest House


“The guest house was completed in 2012 and provides private space for guests and a remote study for the owner.

The form of the guest house was inspired by an Anselm Kiefer painting. On a lead sheet at the center of the artist’s work, a chalk outline of a cube was drawn with diagonally opposite corners chamfered. Transferred to a small structure the cleaving of the corners offered a unique way of both entering and lighting the interior.

The lower level has a two-story entry space, sleeping niche, laundry, toileting, and shower. A stair leads to an upper level study and sleeping loft.” (Source)

Two Story Tiny House for Work, Guests or Living?

This is a unique tall and skinny house that I just had to show you. And it looks like there’s another small structure on the property as well.

I love the window frames and it seems to be very spacious considering it has two stories. Looks like it’d make for a great little house or even just guest quarters on anyone’s property to live in, rent out, or for family and friends to stay in.

And I really like the surrounding trees and nature. There seems to be some nice outdoor space to hang out in too.

Tiny Cottage Style Shed: Bedroom, Workspace or Art Studio?

Old hut at Swanage steam railway station at Corfe Castle

Looks like this “tiny cottage” is an extra structure on some property with an already existing house.

I absolutely love the bridge that leads right to it. It looks like a scene from a story book, doesn’t it?

A cottage style shed like this would make such a great space for art, work, or even just storage.

I also think it would make for a pretty nice separated bedroom or bunkhouse. This way one could use it as a guest house or just as a place to get some alone time. What are your thoughts on it?
