Minimalist Weekend Retreat With A View In Japan Would Suit A Lions Bay Address

With our city now so laughably unaffordable, thousands of Vancouverites are stuck imagining wonderful homes instead of living in them. “Spaced” is a record of our minds wandering the world of architecture and design, up and away from the unrewarding realities of shoebox condos, dark basement suites, and sweet fuck all on Craigslist.

(via) This minimalist house overlooking the Pacific near Osaka was built into a terraced hillside as a weekend retreat for clients keen on taking it easy (the big bath is a dead giveaway). Described as a “playground for grownups” by local architecture firm Process5 Design, the “T Weekend Residence” comes complete with several decks (including a stunning rooftop promenade) as well as its very own swing. We’d happily take ours somewhere near the Village of Lions Bay on the Sea-To-Sky Highway overlooking Howe Sound.

This Italian Architect’s ‘Pinecone’ Should Be a Laneway House in Strathcona

Given the option, we think a lot of us would choose to live in a pinecone inspired by the theories of philosopher Michael Foucault...

We want this cozy, picturesquely isolated Olson Kundig home / workspace in the remote wastes of Idaho.

We Want to Steal This Cabin and Rebuild It on a Secret Plot near Tofino

The half-underground cabin in the middle of nowhere in Sweden would make a great hideaway outside Sooke or Tofino on Vancouver Island
