Fairytale-Inspired Tiny Cabin With A Rocky Exterior Perfectly Merges With The French Forest

A picturesque dwelling called Antoine was built in 2014 by Bureau. The little home was designed to blend with the Swiss Alps, and now the firm has unveiled another literature-inspired tiny home called Thérèse. The lovely abode features a rocky exterior finish and is inspired by Charles-Ferdinand Ramirez’s novel Derborence. The story includes the protagonist Antoine, and his wife Thérèse.

Tucked away in a rural forested area, the micro-cabin is located in an artistic residence in the East of France. It was built using wood and then shrouded with a rock-like concrete finish. The interior of the home occupies 94.7 sq ft and has a finish of natural wood. The home doesn’t seem to be as claustrophobic as you would expect, in fact, it is filled with natural light as it streams in through massive porthole-like windows.

As you enter the unique dwelling, you are welcomed by a spacious floor space that accommodates a single room. The room includes a wood-burning stove which can be utilized for cooking. It also contains some storage space, a table, and bench seating. Additional bench seating is located closely as well. The interior style is minimal and subtle, with wooden furnishings and touches. It does have a calming appeal as you enter.

The rest of the interior also includes a tiny house-style mezzanine sleeping area which can be accessed via a ladder. But one of the evident drawbacks of the home is that it doesn’t include a bathroom, which is really quite inconvenient in my opinion. So if nature comes calling, visitors will have to use the forest for their needs. Although the cabin is quite quaint and adorable, it does seem quite sparse when it comes to amenities. There doesn’t seem to be much equipped with space, and the lack of a bathroom is a major drawback. However, if you’re planning for a quick stay, maybe for a day, then the Thérèse tiny home could be a good option, but for longer durations, the dwelling really does seem to leave you wanting.
