The cabin in the woods is a single family home that serves as a full time residence for its owner and expands to a vacation home for large family gatherings. It is imperative it be a flexible space that allows private comfort and space for individuality. This is achieved by though each space’s unique connection to nature. Through these relationships the home changes with the seasons: enclosed, shaded, and protected in the summer, while farsighted in winter, when the canopy of trees shed their leaves.
