'Woodland Cabin', Design and Make, 2020
Student Project by Wyatt Armstrong, Hilla Gordon, Ciro Romer, Nasia Pantelidou, Shengning Zhang, Design and Make, 2020, for a 'Woodland Cabin'

The Cabin is a timber structure dealing with the challenges of uniting organic and milled geometries. Drawing a lineage from previous projects developed at Hooke Park, the Cabin aims to resolve ambitious design and fabrication techniques at a domestic scale. It exercises an approach to pre-fabrication that embeds assembly logic within the structure's discrete components.

The primary structure - four columns connected by a bracing element - touches down on a series of concrete pads. Composed of branching tree elements, robotic fabrication was employed to articulate a series of timber connections that pair digitally produced faces with those crafted by hand. The envelope consists of a floor and four panels which interlock along their seams. Four openings orient the building to its site, providing a dynamic entry and layered views that expand the internal space into the landscape and sky.

A loose internal layout directed an initial exploration of built-in furnishings. The feature of these is a robotically sculpted ceramic hearth - the culmination of research in preparing and firing clay extracted from a local river bed. With these furnishings the cabin begins to function as an informal domestic space for students and staff to inhabit and augment as they please.
