Not Your Ordinary Log Cabin

Your ordinary log cabin is laid out with lengthwise logs stacked to make its outer walls. Piet Hein Eek, charged with building a cozy recording studio for friend and musician Hans Liberg, did not make any ordinary log cabin.  (Pics)

 

This log cabin isn’t even really that: the log facade just covers a plastic and steel frame. It isn’t what you’d expect on the inside, either. Instead of dark, dingy room with a stove in the corner, Hein Eek’s cabin conceals a clean, bright, and quiet modern recording studio.

Passers by might mistake the structure for a pile of logs, but they’ll know something’s up when Liberg props open all the unique, top-hinged windows on the sides of the pile. If they’re still nonplussed, they won’t be when the shack rolls away; it has wheels and can be hitched to an automobile for relocation, if Liberg ever gets tired of the view.
