We Dig These Cabins Designed For Sustaining Good Times in the Wild

With our cities now so laughably unaffordable, thousands of British Columbians 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, sweet f~ck all on Craigslist and three levels of government that couldn’t give a damn.

(via) Led by a small group of scientists (not architects), a forward-thinking Chilean company called ZeroCabin makes these beautiful, zero waste, self-sustaining cabins for off-grid living…

The constructions – oriented for maximum sun exposure – use integrated systems such as biodegradable insulation, thermally efficient glazing, photovoltaic panels, grey and black water treatment, rainwater collection (purified by reverse osmosis) and more — perfect for the British Columbian wilds.

SPACED // Tiny ‘Nature Villa’ in the Woods

It lacks a kitchen but we'd happily cook over a fire nearby just so we could sleep in that bed and hang on that deck...

Contemplating Life on a Handmade ‘Floating Island’

The big deck holds a BBQ, a herb garden, a hammock, and several other wonderful things besides (like a baby blue canoe).

We’d Like to Self-Isolate in This Off-Grid Tiny House on the Other Side of the World

To be able to escape the city for the sake of social distancing is a dream worth having in these weird and dangerous times.
