A Retractable Curved Glass Wall Is The Face Of This Small Round Cabin

French company Lumicene has shared their latest project, LumiPod 6, a small cabin that has been installed for their client, that has views of Lake Geneva.

The 279 square foot (26sqm) cabin is circular in its design, with vertical wood cladding the exterior.

A small round cabin includes an exterior of vertical dark wood siding.

At the front of the cabin, there’s a 19 foot (6m) diameter Lumicene window, allowing the interior space to be occasionally transformed into an outdoor space.

The joinery is custom made in natural oak wood veneer, the ceiling panels are covered with wool felt, and the bed, which looks like it’s floating, is integrated into a shallow niche.

The gray, white, and wood bathroom is located behind the bedroom and includes floor-to-ceiling small square tiles that cover the walls.
