Architects Weston / Surman & Deane were asked to create a writers cabin in London. The cabin had to be build on a low budget and become an escape from the city. The response is this soft cornered cabin with stove and full back wall bookshelf in the garden of the author. During the night the backlit cabin shows its true identity, a serene space in a busy city.

From 25 January until 6 April RAA London presents Sensing Spaces. “Seven architectural practices from six countries and four continents. 23,000 square feet. 72 days. One monumental exhibition.
Some of the most creative architectural minds from around the world have come to the RA to give you a new perspective on architecture and transform our Main Galleries with a series of large scale installations.
As you respond to different structures, textures, lighting, scents and colours, we invite you to consider some of the big questions about the nature of architecture; how do spaces make us feel? What does architecture do for our lives?
You are as much a part of this exhibition as the work itself – invited to touch, climb, walk, talk, sit, contemplate – re-imagine the world around you.”
The show got some great reviews and is well worth a visit when you are in town.
