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.

Piled on top of one another horizontally, these logs form the cabin’s walls. Gaps between them create bookshelves, while larger openings act as windows.
