HANDS UP IF THIS AUSTRALIAN HEATWAVE is slowly, but surely draining the very life out of you? Yes... us too. With that in mind, we've compiled some of our favourite cool-climate cabins from around the world! In true northern hemisphere style, these beautiful abodes and holiday retreats are all about considered design, the absolute essentials and getting back to nature. We're in love!
While "cabin" might be a stretch (we're thinking more along the lines of super luxe homestead set in the hills of Switzerland), this holiday house by architects, afgh, has us seriously yearning for time amongst the snowfields with nothing but the sound of nature around us. While wifi might be an issue, we'd happily trade it for a few nights here in 0° temperatures!
The wood, the glass, the trees... oh my! When a 28 year old from Amsterdam up and quits his job in a tech firm to chase his passion, you don't necessarily imagine the above. However, that is exactly what happened here. Needless to say, said 28 year old is now studying at London's prestigious AA School of Architecture.
Canada is known for it's natural landscape. So if you're looking for something a little off the grid, this "micro cabin" by LEA Architects could prove the perfect option. Equipped with a sleeping loft, a wood stove (and hopefully a lavatory), this is a recluses dream come true!
It's hard to pick just one cool holiday abode when perusing the options at Treehotel in Sweden. However, 'The Cabin' has us feeling serious nordic vibes. Beautifully slick architecture? Tick. Minimalist interiors? Tick. Trees forever? Tick.
Even if there is 0% chance of curling up by a fire right now, our No 352 Leather & Cedar will have you reminiscing on cooler day!
