House In Quebec’s Wilds Would Suit A Lakeside Perch On The Road Up To Whistler

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) We’re going to go ahead and take this double triangle house away from its home-base in the wilds of south-eastern Quebec and reconstruct it in the woods overlooking one of the small lakes on the road up to Whistler. Designed by Jean Verville, the angle-loving private residence balances indoor and out with floor to ceiling sliding glass opening up to a patio sheltered by a cantilevered prism (rain, rain, go away). The interior is nothing if not playful in its minimalism with splashes of colour and bold furniture choices giving character to the clean lines. Built for a young professional couple with two young kids, it looks like a grand hideaway, and a great place to grow up in.

This Tiny Cabin for Beer Island, Please

With solar panels on its A-frame, the stilted construction has very little impact on its immediate environment and did not require building permits because of its diminutive size.

The Norwegian Hideout of Our Dreams

This cool construction by TYIN Architects was built with the help of a group of students in just three weeks. Imagine the quiet within.

Wanting This Concrete Cabin in Mexico Near a Tofino Beach

Designed by Aranza de Arino (and available on Airbnb), it's close to the big wave surfer's paradise of Puerto Escondido.

A Spartan Hideaway of Wood and Window

This minimalist, perspective-compressing 2016 home in Japan would suit an out-of-the-way slice of the Lower Mainland.
