Winter Cabin on Mount Kanin in Slovenia by OFIS ARHITEKTI

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: OFIS ARHITEKTI

The research for the Cabin was initiated by OFIS arhitekti and CBD structural engineers in collaboration with PZS,  PD Bovec, JZS, Permiz d.o.o. and Ortar in Jerman d.o.o. to develop Self-contained wooden shell, which resist extreme conditions on top of the mountain.

The challenge is to install real objects, shelters in 1:1 on remote sites and study their response to extreme weather, radical temperature shifts, snow and rugged terrain. The harsh conditions of wind, snow, landslides, terrain, and weather require a response of specific architectural forms, structures and concept.

RØLDAL CABIN in Norway by REIULF RAMSTAD ARKITEKTER

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: REIULF RAMSTAD ARKITEKTER

The Røldal family vacation home is recognisable for its compact, defined and geometric shape. The objective of preserving as much of the surrounding landscape possible as a high priority resulted in the design of two volumes: a small cabin and an annex, that keep a dialogue with the encompassing nature. Dividing the structures also answers to the need of a high flexibility and to accommodate dierent family compositions in separate spaces. The articulated section is adapted to the steep terrain and is assigned to create interconnected floors and capture the views of both the forest and the hillside.

Wood and the Dog in Province of Cuneo, Italy by StudioErrante Architetture

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

Article source: StudioErrante Architetture

Despite its small dimension, the cabin includes a series of functions which determine its formal solutions.

It’s a shed, where the firewood required by the client’s house heating system is stored. The air passing through the planks of the building’s shell ensures the collected wood to dry.

It’s a shelter, a refuge, a place that provides interaction between the private but open courtyard and the outside public space. A center of gravity around which the life of the clients and the inhabitants of the small hamlet takes place: the niche on the south facade is a special seat for humans an animals.

Boulder Retreat in Wyoming by Carney Logan Burke Architects

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Carney Logan Burke Architects 

The Boulder Retreat is located adjacent to a ski resort in Wyoming. The owners’ program called for a modest but expandable residential program to be interpreted in an architectural language that is abstract rather than literal in referencing the ubiquitous “western log cabin”.

Polycarbonate Cabin in Guanaqueros, Chile by Alejandro Soffia / Architect

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Article source: Alejandro Soffia / Architect

In 1953 Le Corbusier wrote a letter to the Chilean Architects, and was sent through Emilio Duhart, a very important Chilean Architect that was drawing for him the buildings that he was doing in that moment in India. In this letter he emphasize the need on taking care of people while developing a design process. He said that “in that moment academic ideas where left behind, and the smallest measurements, the shorter distances or the smallest built spaces, become precious as a glass of water in the desert”.

Cabin Straumsnes in Tingvoll, Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

Paradoxically the new main cabin at Årsund was built after the annex. This due to the fact that the original cabin, with exception of the annex, was removed to make way for the new-build. Moreover, the annex was drawn by another architect office and completed a few years ago. We therefore had to design a new whole, which included the annex and yet at the same time created a new building which in itself would provide a satisfactory solution both for site and program.

Colorado Outward Bound School Micro Cabins by ColoradoBuildingWorkshop

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Article source: ColoradoBuildingWorkshop

Located on a steep hillside in a lodgepole pine forest, these cabins were designed as micro dormitories for the Colorado Outward Bound School. The cabins sit lightly on the landscape, directing views from private spaces towards trees, rock outcroppings and distant mountain views of the Mosquito Range. More public “community” views are directed into social spaces that develop from the organization of the cabins in relationship to one another. These community spaces are made up of front porches and the negative spaces between cabins.

Whitetail Woods Regional Park Camper Cabins in Farmington, Minnesota by HGA

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Nestled into the hillside of a new regional park, three camper cabins riff on the idea of a tree house entered from a bridge at the crest of a hill. Built on concrete piers to minimize environmental impact, the 227-square-foot cabins with an 80-square-foot deck feature red cedar glulam chassis, cedar and pine framing, and red cedar cladding. Two full-size bunks, dining and sitting areas accommodate four individuals, with a sleeper sofa and folding seating accommodating up to two more. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors frame views of the forest.
