The model Abé is specially designed (and named after Abelard and Heloise) for a couple. Located on a isolated hill it functioned as a great retreat from the hustle and bustle of the Oerol theater festival [www.oerol.nl] on the island of Terschelling, The Netherlands.

Waking up with wavy grass, blue skies, seagulls and curious sheep. All characteristics of the Hermit Houses building system were combined to make it happen. The custom design, easy prefabrication, two-day transport and buildup and out-of-the-box self-sufficient installations.

Abé is just one of many possible Hermit Houses. Special 3d software in combination with the optimized building system allows for custom designs at minimum costs. It incorporates and optimizes the complete production line: from custom design to presentation, building documentation to CNC mill production.

In the near future this software becomes available online for DIY enthusiasts to create their own houses and order construction kits and accessories. The Hermit Houses will be one of the first to bring mass-customization to architecture.
