Diane Middlebrook Writers Cabins by CCS Architecture
Writing for a living is hard in a way that not a lot of jobs are. When you’re working on a book it is your responsibility alone to make progress, and with so many distractions on our phones and computers, that can sometimes feel impossible. Built specifically for writers looking to get away from all the noise, designer Cass Calder Smith built these cabins in the Santa Cruz mountains for the Djerassi Resident Artists Program.
As simple as they are beautiful, the cabins were built with concrete floors with carpet tiles, sheet rock walls, a galvanized metal roof with solar panels, and cedar cladding. The Diane Middlebrook Studios are built with modest dimensions, each measuring just 280-square-feet, but the glass doors open up to the expanse of the Pacific Ocean. While each studio is close to one another, there are no shared walls and once you’re inside your room, you can’t see any other building. Selective hermitage at its best. Now get back to work.
