This Latvian Cabin Blends Minimalist Living & Eco Immersion

The problem with trying to create an off-the-grid getaway is that, too often, it requires a compromise between modern comforts and ecological impact. With enough care and attention, however, blending the two can be a beautiful thing — as is the case in the House ILL by INT2 and Dave Bowcutt.

Playing off of the architectural prowess of INT2, digital artist Dave Bowcutt wanted to see if he could create the ultimate minimalist cabin in the woods — and he may have managed that exactly. Hidden in a forest outside of Riga, Latvia, House ILL emphasizes the embracement of nature itself in its layout and construction. The sleek black roofing and siding pairs beautifully with the exposed natural wood details and the open format almost brings the beauty of nature into the home itself. It might just be a concept right now, but we’d absolutely adore this project if it ever became tangible.
