Library Retreat for Book Lovers

Rejoice, book lovers: we found the place where everyone will finally leave you alone. This little black cabin, built by Studio Padron, is actually a library and guest house for a vacation home in upstate New York. Appropriately, it’s called Hemmelig Rom — “secret room” in Norwegian.


The whole structure is made from oak trees that were cut down to make room for the main house, then dried over time in long, rectangular logs. Those logs now form the cabin’s walls — and the gaps between them form the bookshelves inside.



Inside, there’s also a bed, an armchair, a desk and a wood-burning stove: all the cozy trappings of a book lover’s ideal retreat. It’s also in the woods, so cell service is probably pretty bad. More time for reading. Via Mashable Image: Studio Padron
