Nature dictates the shape and materials of this Dutch cabin in the woods.
When Willeke Makatita approached Gijsbert Schutten of Liberte Tiny Houses, she had one very specific request: a compact dwelling that would let her simplify her life and live as close to nature as possible. “Willeke loves walking, camping, and bushcraft,” Schutten says. “She asked for a home that would suit those passions.”
Inspired by the dynamic qualities of the natural landscape, Schutten developed a design that would let Willeke be immersed in nature. “When she first came to me, she had the idea of a Hobbit house in mind, something with rounded lines,” Schutten says. “But as we talked, I learned that her main wish was a house with an organic shape, large windows, and lots of sunlight.”
