The Small House Is A Minimalist All-Wood Cabin Built From Local Douglas Fir

The concept of architectural minimalism is interesting in that it should, logically, be limited in its variety. Yet people keep managing to figure out new and interesting ways to manage it. In this case, the folks at 2m26 have crafted a pared-down, esoteric guest house in the French countryside they’ve called simply ‘The Small House’ (AKA ‘La Petite Maison’).

Sitting on concrete stilts just a few inches above the ground of Guitinières, The Small House is manufactured almost entirely from locally-sourced Douglas Fir — giving it a rustic and uniform appearance, which is furthered by the inclusion of a full set of matching wood furniture. The 377 square-foot structure also features separate areas for sleeping, bathing, a kitchen/dining area, and even an outdoor room/patio. Plus, the exposed wood structure features floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that serve to give it the illusion of being much larger. For an isolated, cozy getaway, we think this tiny cabin will do just fine.
