The writer’s cabin has been designed and built in a few months for a children books writer. For her, the process and the resulting built needed to be extremely evocative and source of inspiration for her future books.

项目位于冬天格外寒冷的马德里北部。 MuDD Architects第一次接受此类型的挑战，在平凡的日常住宅中将数字预制技术和精湛的建造工艺紧密结合。
The writer’s cabin in the North of Madrid where winters are extremely cold is the first of a kind for MuDD Architects where digital fabrication combined with highly skilled master builders is used in the same project for a mundane everyday use.

The new architecture is also a claim from MuDD Architects that digital fabrication can really help make highly unique homes affordable.

Part of the challenges of the writer’s cabin project was to design a cabin like architecture but with a contemporary twist. Finding art in the simplest lines and allowing continuous local maple wood envelope on the inside.

SIMON LEDS的灯具强调了围护结构简单而坚固的线条，勾勒出露台轮廓，也凸显了大屋顶的体积感。作家还可以通过SIMON 100断路器自由地改变灯光氛围。一些小灯被安插在连续不断的大书架内，如萤火虫一般散发出点点星光。两盏专业照明灯布置在4 米高处，照亮了作家的书桌。
The simple yet strong lines of the envelope are highlight by SIMON LEDS stressing the large roof volume and a perimeter line of the terrasse. The SIMON 100 interrupters with dimer allow the writer to change the ambiance of the place. Furthermore, some little lights are placed inside the oversized bookshelves like fireflies. Two technical lights lit the main table of the writer from 4 m high.

The continuous envelope of house roof is made of folded oxidated iron here the finishing and colours tons are ruled by the level of oxidation. The extremely thin oxidated iron bespoke frame of each main façade allows the laminated glass to offer total integration of the house into the stunning garden the family has highlighting the different species plants colours and seasons entering the house office.

The most challenging part but as well one of the most important part of the house are the highly complex curvy bookshelves adapted to the very specific sloped high roofs of the house. These bookshelves create a sensation of movement held still in time where the heavy weight of both the horizontal and verticals are counterbalancing the weight of the high roof. The bookshelves are composed of 100 of different pieces cut with CNC with Fusteria Digital in Girona where different sorts of dry assembly were testes in order to be the most discrete possible.

A different tone of wood this time locally sourced pine wood is used and on purpose left natural to contrast with the maple syrup finishing of the maple inside cladding panels. Again, creating a sensation of equilibrium is the cast black iron hanged chiminea coming down from the highest point of the roof. The terrace of the house is in seamless continuation of the indoors wooden floor to feel even more from inside part of the surrounding nature.

This project biggest challenge doesn’t lie in the techniques that requires a huge number of hours for both digital and manual construction but mostly in the level of emotion the client has towards reaching perfection for the dream house of hers. The project came a few months after she almost lost her life during the pandemic crisis and the writers cabin is somehow a celebration of her having survived, an architectural symphony of her being alive and being able to create in this unique new built home reference to Virginia Wolfs’ book ‘A room of One’s own’.
