Cosy library and guest house by Studio Padron

This tiny black cabin by US firm Studio Padron serves as a cosy library and guest house for a vacation home in upstate New York.

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 one-room volume is just large enough to accommodate a bed, an armchair, and a small desk. A wood-burning stove heats the space, allowing it to be used year-round.

Two picture windows allow light to filter in, and connect the library to the surrounding forest.

Black vertical wooden boards clad the tiny retreat. "The monolithic black exterior strikes a strong figure in the landscape, creating an enigmatic presence in the winter terrain," said Padron. Source: Dezeen.com - Photography is by Jason Koxvold.
