This Pine-Clad, View-Heavy Cabin In Rural Norway As A Hideaway Above Lion’s Bay

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) It must be so nice to be an architect and be able to design an escape that’s tailored to your own needs and desires. Such was the case with Jon Danielsen Aarhus, who built this pine-clad, view-heavy getaway cabin for his family at the foot of the Hardangervidda, a massive mountain plateau in the middle of Norway’s version of nowhere. We’d take ours, complete with equally dramatic glass frontage and sloping ceiling, above the Sea To Sky village of Lion’s Bay, where it could overlook the eastern shore of Howe Sound.

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.
