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

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) All it took was one lousy 48 hour heatwave and we’re already pining for the wintry windswept wilds of the middle of nowhere! This modernist-inspired entertaining hut is located on the edge of Scotland’s Cairngorms National Park (the UK’s biggest, most desolate swathe of land). Designed by London-based Moxon Architects, it’s all of 500 sqft with a Spartan, spruce-lined interior and a roof capped in heather, moss and stone. Since its primary function is to shelter gatherings and meals for a client with a residence elsewhere on the vast estate, there are no sleeping quarters — only a long feasting table and a wood-burning stove. We’d take ours – for magical meals prepared by Joy Road – somewhere remote but accessible in the Okanagan highlands east of Vaseux Lake.
