This Modern Cabin Was Crafted Using Local Materials & Traditional Methods

The tiny home movement has had a profound impact on modern architecture and design, with the pint-sized dwellings repeatedly pushing the envelope when it comes to finding clever ways to maximize minimal amounts of space through the use of integrated stairs and ladders, hidden storage, convertible elements, and lofted sleeping quarters. And despite being considerably larger than anything that qualifies as a tiny home, North Carolina-based architecture firm, Shelter Design Studio has taken these space-saving principals and applied them to a traditional Southern American cabin, resulting in what the company is calling “The Nook.”

With the exception of the large windows, The Nook looks like a fairly unassuming structure, with a small roofed front porch and an open-air deck around back. Inside, however, the use of high ceilings, integrated ladders, stairs, seating, and shelving, affords ample usable space, even though the cabin’s footprint is relatively meager. In addition to the bedroom loft in one corner, the abode also boasts a second loft directly above the kitchen that acts as a dining area, though there’s also a built-in breakfast nook on the ground floor. For more information on The Nook, you can check out the Shelter Design Studio website linked below.
