This ‘Moonlight Cabin’ In Australia For A Stretch Of Spectacular Desolation In BC

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 small structure overlooking a stretch of Australian coast has everything you could want in a small family escape, which is to say a double bed, a couple of bunks, a kitchen and a bathroom – all of which are integrated into and around a central island pod. It also has one hell of a view. Dubbed ‘Moonlight Cabin’ by its designers at Melbourne-based studio Jackson Clement Burrows, the isolated building is wrapped in wood siding interspersed with modular rain/sun screening that allows for adaptive conditions within. But where to put it if we could steal it? As much as the location reminds us of the iconic (but recently destroyed) Checker’s Pavilion in Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park, we imagine it more convincingly somewhere in spectacular desolation on the Sunshine Coast.

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

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.

Feasting Hut In The Scottish Wilds Would Suit The Desolate Okanagan Highlands

All it took was one lousy 48 hour heatwave and we're already pining for the wintry windswept wilds of the middle of nowhere!
