Architect: Alireza Razavi of Studio Razavi Architecture, Location: Manigod, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France
From the architect: "In this highly preserved Alpine valley, stringent architectural guidelines allow for very little freedom of architectural expression. Everything from building height/width ratio to roof slope, via building material and window sizes are strictly controlled to enforce what is locally perceived as patrimony protection but de facto creating camp architecture, endlessly mimicking traditional mountain homes.In order to circumvent these limitations we took great care in analyzing local historical buildings so as to understand what their forms accomplished functionally and how they shaped the local architectural culture. We then integrated this information into our design, simply avoiding all artificial and/or obsolete elements while making sure that the building was entirely code compliant."
Architect: Jess Paterson Architects, Location: Ben Ohau, Canterbury, New Zealand
From the project uploader: "A small (50 square metre) getaway cabin in the South Island of New Zealand."
Architect: PARKA, Location: Wentworth-Nord, Quebec, Canada
From the architect: "The cabin has been imagined with an intention to be integrated with the landscape and the site. Designed for a young family of three, the project emerges both inside and outside, framing perfectly the extraordinary nature of the location. The living areas overlooking the forest provides a feeling of living in the treetops.The simple volumetry and the contemporary approach are in harmony with the materiality of the project and its environment. The wood and the natural slate clapboards, both material from Quebec, are contrasting with the white and minimalist interior. The scale of the walls and windows provides a lot of openings on the outside, resulting in a natural lighting which is out of the ordinary."
Architect: CABN, Location: Australia
From the project uploader: "CABNs are entirely self-sustainable and can be placed on beautiful parcels of land all over Australia, designed to effortlessly blend in with the Australian landscape."
