Gizmodo recently mentioned a different type of log cabin. Piet Hein Eek built this variation as a recording studio for his friend and musician Hans Liberg. The log facade, as shown above, covers a plastic and steel frame. It’s not very clear from the picture, but the cabin is on wheels, has a hitch, and can be towed. Currently located in Hilversum, Netherlands, the log cabin houses a modern recording studio in its surprisingly bright interior. You can glimpse a bit of this in the picture below, where the top-hinged windows are opened.

You can find a lot more pictures at the Thomas Mayer Archive link below.

    Interesting and clever, but this is another one of those projects that leave me thinking: “Money. Is there anything it can’t do?”

    I would have liked to have seen how they concealed the wheels, but gave up after about thirty “next photo” clicks in.

    They never show pics of the wheels… but they do show some awesome drawings: http://thomasmayerarchive.de/details.php?image_id=168937&l=english

    Duh. Could have made it a lot easier on myself if I had taken the time to notice that clicking on any photo gives an album view.

    Now, how does one enlarge the images of the drawings?

    When in the gallery view just hold your mouse over the picture and it just pops up. No click is needed.

    After seeing the inside the only thought that occurred to me was how badly I’d want to get out of such a small cramped bland space. Too bad the interior doesn’t look nearly as enticing as the exterior. I mean who cares what viewers think as long as the creative environment (inside) is comfortable.

    That’s Art for you- sometimes you just have to do it for the sake of doing it.

  7. Coach James says:

    Was anyone able to enlarge a drawing enough to get dimensions?

  8. Eddie says:

    What is the point of this? Why would you want o conceal your recording studio?

    I think this is kinda stupid. I understand a mobile recording studio. But unless your stage name involved the wood as part of it… Chuck Wood, Woody Woodson, et al This makes no sense.
