The cabin is reinvented with these constructions in the heart of nature and with an ultra-contemporary design. Zoom.
Whether at the edge of a lake, in a snowy mountain, in the middle of the wilderness, architects have wanted to challenge themselves by building unusual cabins in new and natural places. We call “cabins” small houses built in wood in general, like huts, but in a much more contemporary style.
The cabins are essential
For several years, this type of construction has been on the rise. Result: many architects have built cabins in unseen places in the whole world. As the media says Architectural Digestthe book Modern Cabins: Return to the Wild, highlights the most beautiful and unusual cabins in the world. And we must admit that some have something to make us dream. Whether in Asia, Europe, Canada, the United States or elsewhere, these cabins will make you want to travel. So which do you prefer?
