The project is located in the suburbs of Wuhan. The owners are internet professionals, a family of four who wanted a vacation cabin in nature to accompany their children and relax. The house is built with light wood structure and hidden in the bushes.
Paul, the owner, comes from a scientific background, "This wooden house, for me, is both a reward and a place to come and catch my breath when I feel overwhelmed. The future lifestyle I imagine will be more about experience than achievement; the pursuit of achievement often comes with anxiety, while experience is easier to obtain and more grounding and enriching."
The cabin is a two-story space structure with a huge triangular loft that makes the house look like a spaceship while creating a sense of care for the field, a response to the southern climate where the family can still be under the same roof during the season of exposure and rainy days.
The overall structure of the wooden house is made of Finnish wood, with the appearance of natural wood grain plywood and large roofs of carbonized wood texture, we hope to amplify the influence of the material on the space and senses, and return to the real natural state.
