Today we will talk about a different design. The name of the project, which we will talk about with its different architectural design, new material methods and techniques used during construction, is Ashen Kabin.
The Ashen Cabin is designed using 3D scanning and robotic fabrication techniques for Emerald-Ash-Borer infested ash wood lumber.
Infested knot trees are not used for construction due to their difficult shape. However, a robotic arm and band saw were used to cut logs of irregular shape and size. The windows, which are different from the wooden panels, were used in the entrance parts of the roof, and architecturally important areas were emphasized. Other wood panels were used in the exterior cladding of the cabin and in other areas.
We see that the cabin consists of a combination of wavy wooden panels on small prismatic concrete legs. All concrete details used in the cabin are designed to create a jagged edge and a linear pattern.
When viewed from the outside, the curved chimney and black plywood windows attract attention. There are four windows in the cabin. The windows are positioned to face the forest land.
There is no running water or electricity in the cabin. The cabin uses a camping sink and a foam-insulated wood-burning fireplace. The fact that architects have been designing off-grid residences recently has made these sustainable structures popular.
