Thoreau Cabin by CC-Studio

Henry David Thoreau, the (maybe not quite so) hermetic American writer and thinker has inspired everyone from Martin Luther King Jr. to Ghandi with his writings on civil disobedience, but thanks to highschool teachers ubiquitous assigning of Walden as reading material he may be best known for his writing about living in the woods. And that that seems to be the inspiration behind the architecture firm CC-Studio naming this dwelling the Thoreau Cabin.

Located in the 5,900 acre Noordepark in Utrecht, a city in the center of the Netherlands, this cabin serves as an update to an older break shelter built for park maintenance. Two large sliding doors open up the corner of the cabin made with wood, corrugated steel, and glass – opening up into a large space with a kitchen, a table, and washroom for workers to warm up during the winter or cool down on hot summer days. Large windows, light wood, and a fireplace all help to keep the space light and comfortable in any kind of weather. Theoreau wishes he could have had such a nice place to call home.
