A Frame Cabin design black cladding _ Life Space Cabins

An A Frame Cabin Design Project

Creating a new rural retreat offering for North Yorkshire.

Designed by Life Space Cabins and handcrafted on site by the clients own construction team in Yorkshire, this A-Frame cabin design was a design brief that required a simple pared back aesthetic that would allow expansive glass to frame the uninterrupted views of the North Yorkshire countryside.

The result was two unique spaces perfectly situated in their own wildflower meadow. 

Outside they have included a built-in deck, complete with sunken bath and fire pit giving guests an unrivalled feeling of being in nature.

Cabin Design Brief

  • Create one design suitable for 4 units for ‘glamping’ accommodation.
  • Maximise on the far reaching views.
  • Comfortable space for two people to share. 
  • Include space for one king size bed.
  • Consider the relationship between the cabin and the existing buildings and future wedding/ event hire.
  • The cabins should be based on the A frame design, with ideally a bed on a mezzanine, a small kitchen with breakfast bar, open plan living area with log burner and a shower room. 
  • Black exterior cladding – ref timber cladding.

What is Slow Architecture?

Slow Architecture can be defined as spaces that are created and used at the right pace as opposed to completing something quickly in order to reach short term goals. The movement can also describes architecture and design that places people first and encourages thoughtfully designed buildings that have a social, economical and environmental impact on their locality.

Here at Life Space Cabins, our values and ethos have always been about making good design available for everyone. We want to work with clients who share our passion and want to enjoy the process from start to completion.

We have always taken a considered approach. We never cut corners, we properly resolve any challenges that arise along the way and we’re 100% committed to creating a space that exceeds your every expectation.

This results in us working with you to design and build beautiful, considered spaces that make life better.
