Sleek Upstate New York Cabin Makes For Perfect Book Lovers Getaway
Studio Padron completed the cabin to serve as a standalone, one-room library on the property. The small black hut doubles as a place for visitors to sleep.
The Minimalist structure is dubbed Hemmelig Rom – secret room, in Norwegian. It was built from mature oak trees that were felled during construction of the main house.
“The strategy for the cottage centered on preserving and transforming a material that would otherwise have become construction waste,” said principal Brandon Padron.
The cabin was a long time in the making – after being cut into large rectangular log sections, the wood was left to dry for several years on site.
