The Knotted Cabin (or Knütthuus in German; Knütten means knotting, knitting or tying in Low German) is well named. Not only are there clever design references to the name throughout the cabin (bold, knotted ropes act as room partitions), but the cabin itself is a place where friends, guests and time-out seekers can come together and connect. It’s also a place where a network of regional designers have been able to showcase their designs: beautiful interiors are a given here.
The concept might sound high-end (and we can confirm that the architecture and interiors are an exceptional quality), but the space is in no way daunting. From the sprawling terrace to the open-plan living space, everything about the Knotted Cabin is welcoming. Created as a passion project by designed Irina Rohpeter and architect Nils Kistner, the cabin was carefully constructed blend into the Wendland landscape while preserving the naturalness of the woodland site. The result is magical: a sophisticated hideout that allows you to focus on the beautiful simplicity of life.
Introducing Irina and Nils!
“We wanted to see what would happen if we, a structural engineer with a passion for with a passion for architecture (Nils) and a designer with a passion for functional aesthetics (Irina), got together to dream up a holiday home. The result, Knütthuus (which sort of translates to Knotted House or Knitting House) - and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”
“We’re proud to have created a simple space that blends with the surrounding forest while also being cosy and full of unique design pieces.”
