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.

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

Dreaming of This Rural Washington State Retreat for a Clearing on Galiano Island

The house is wrapped in Western Red Cedar and features an office, an in/out fireplace, high ceilings and lots of windows.

We Want This Swedish Mountainside ‘Lofthuset’ to Overlook all of Squamish

They're making four of these beauties for a mountainside in Sweden. Surely they could make a fifth for Squamish...

Imagining This Awesome Treehouse Near Beijing As A Secret North Shore Hideout

The main space - floored with a tatami mat - is for living/sleeping, while the other is used as a washroom. It's tiny (all told under 100 sqft), but we reckon it's enough to provide the one or two people within (anymore would be ridiculous) with the escape they desire. We'd take ours in the quiet cool of the North Shore's Lynn Valley, permits be damned.
