Immersed within Maine's deep forests is a tiny studio shaped like a cube. Petra Simmons Design, who followed the client’s desire for a painting studio and retreat space in nature, built the Harpswell Studio out of locally-sourced natural resources. Standing on stilts, the habitable wooden shelter causes minimal impact on the ground and blends beautifully with the surrounding environment.
Located inside Harpswell woodland, this gorgeous geometrical studio is the perfect place to find peace. Since it was built just a few hundred feet from a tidal creek, the architect decided to place it on wooden stilts that provide protection from raising water while also causing minimal impact on the ground.
Harpswell Studio started with a basic cube, but the outcome includes angles, peeks and sharp corners. Small orthogonal windows bring in natural light and provide beautiful woodland views from every angle. A one of a kind retreat, the wooden cube in the woods offers inspiration and solitude and a tiny footprint.
