These mass produced retreats conceived by Daniël Venneman and Mark van der Net offer customized designs within a range of settings and contexts. 

Hermit Houses can been fully personalized utilizing a parametric design method to enable flexibility, make the most of the small plot and comply with building regulations. this optimized process of automatic drawing, calculation and production guarantees a rapid construction within budget constraints.

An online design application adds the possibility to customize a hermit house to have it respond to a particular function or need. This easy-to-use design tool allows the pavilion to be customized in its shape and size. Accordingly, wood-cutting plans are generated automatically and integrated in a construction manual which allows anyone to build their own hermit house. By adding a wood stove and heater, solar panels and a composting toilet, the hermit house becomes an autarcic place for retreat, study, work or relaxation.

Applying the motto ‘Life Unplugged’ to the Hermit House, the designers wanted to create an opportunity for users to build a personal space where they can relax and disconnect from the outside world. “We see the Hermit Houses as a comfortable small laboratory where people can experiment with living modestly, completely energy-neutral and in interaction with their surroundings” .

Hermit houses have already been built in different places in The Netherlands and France and at this very moment, several people around the world are constructing their own Hermit House.
