This Cabin Is a Modernist, Prefab, Portable Woodpile

Eichler homes put their occupants in touch with nature using big windows and atriums. Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architecture tried to integrate itself into its site through materials and immersive design elements.

Indeed, modern architecture has a tradition of blending in with its surroundings. But this unique prefab cabin by designer Piet Hein Eek takes the notion one step further, by actually looking just like its surroundings.

Designed for Dutch cabaret performer Hans Liberg, who uses it as a studio, the cabin is made of wood and plastic built onto a steel frame. And as Curbed pointed out, the whole thing is on wheels. It really does look like a stack of logs turned into a house.

The idea to make a house that looks like a woodpile has been around for quite some time. But the mobility of this one means it could theoretically be used anywhere. And as long as it was surrounded by trees, it would just look like someone's old woodpile.

The place looks especially neat at night, when the rectangles of light glow from behind the darkened façade.

Liberg offers a one-minute tour of the place (which is probably 45 seconds too long) in this video:
