SPACED | This Simple Pre-Fab Cabin In The Brazilian Wilds For A Malahat Drive Bald Spot

April 5, 2017.

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 no-frills cabin in rural Brazil has everything we’d want out of an escape, beginning with the sense of isolation it exudes. Its simplicity of design and construction makes it doubly attractive, reinforcing as it does the value of location. Dubbed MINIMOD by its makers, MAPA Architecture, the prefab units are made of sustainable materials and broken down into four modules: a bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen/bathroom. We’d choose ours for a desolate bald spot on Vancouver Island’s mountainous Malahat Drive where it could overlook the wild surrounds of Gowlland Tod Provincial Park and distant Brentwood Bay across the water.
