Summer Cabin 4:12 by Imanna Arkitekter AB

1

Amidst the forests in Ingarö, Sweden, Black Cabin acts as a viewfinder that frames snapshots of the arboreal environment. Designed by Swedish firm Imanna Arkitekter AB, Black Cabin is dedicated to “sleep and contemplation” though the simplicity of the four adjacent rooms – three surrounding a central one – introduces complexities of its own. Each of these spaces uses an opening in the façade as a canvas for nature, leveraging the contrast between the cabin’s dark surface, both internal and external, and the transparency of the glazing. The ends of the volume completely also completely open, converting the cabin from an enclosed space into an integrative piece of architecture.
