The Solarium by William Lamson is a Sweet Sun-Powered Cabin

Using sugar cooked to different temperatures to create the golden panes for the windows, designer William Lamson constructed the Solarium as a meditative environment as well as a functioning greenhouse.

162 panels of sugar sealed in on either side by glass panes form the windows of this delicious cabin, reminiscent of the candy house in the woods from Hansel and Gretel. The golden tinge of the panels serves to brighten up the interior, drawing in warmth and a sense of serenity as the sun's rays shine brightly though the colored panes. Three species of miniature citrus plants grow withing, creating a zen garden that is also a plant conservatory.

Located in an open landscape, the Solarium is an escape for William Lamson.
