Cabin Typology
Cozy retreat in the Catskills, Upstate New York by Paris-based Corpus Studio
 

This cozy retreat in the Catskills, Upstate New York brings the look and feel of a tiny nature cabin into an elegant, contemporary home. Designed by Paris-based Corpus Studio with materials and textures chosen for the finishes and furniture that intentionally juxtapose the old against the new; the rough against the smooth; the comfortable against the austere.

The house exemplifies local artisan work, often hand-crafted with great care and attention to detail.

Returning to the principle cabin typology, the central and quintessential gathering spot of this cabin is the fireplace; it is designed as a glorified pit, featuring a ceramic suspended smoke canopy, resembling the buttressed trunk of a great forest tree.

Designed by John Lautner in 1968
