Nickisch Sano Walder Architekten Casts a Tiny Concrete House from an Old Log Cabin
Nickish Sano Walder used the logs of the wood construction as a form work for the concrete to create a fossilized version of the old barn. This way they captured some of the texture, age and character of the log home. The new tiny home incorporates the memory of the log cabin without having kept a single physical piece of it.
Critics say its too cold and impersonal. But I would argue that the concrete walls invoke an intimate, cave-like feeling. In addition, the concrete walls aren’t smooth either on the inside or the outside, they are textured, adding to the warmth and human scale of the house.
