Two moody, tranquil cabins perch above a Quebec forest

Comments Off on Two moody, tranquil cabins perch above a Quebec forest

Montreal-based firm  Nature Humaine has unveiled a beautiful pair of adjoining cabins tucked into a remote forest outside Quebec. The cube-like structures are clad in a burnt wood facade, giving the design a distinctively minimalist aesthetic. To make the most of the incredible setting, the timber cabins have two massive glass walls that provide breathtaking, panoramic views from the interior. Located in the Eastern Townships, Quebec, the two tiny cabins hold court over a steep, rocky terrain. The cabins are clad in a dark, burnt wood that, along with the pre-woven hemlock planks used for the exterior walkways and connection point, create a quiet, natural palette that easily blends into the landscape. Related: Linear Cabin is an elegant hideaway in the woods of Wisconsin To reduce the project’s footprint, the cabins were anchored into thick, but nearly invisible, raw concrete foundations. Overhanging roofs on both structures were designed to emphasize the views but also to reduce solar gains in the hot summer months. The two cabins were slanted just a bit to follow the natural slope of the ground, giving off the rather frightful sensation that they are just about to slide off into the forested abyss below. The cabins are comprised of two modules connected by an interior walkway. The first module houses the living space and kitchen, while the bedrooms are in the second cabin. In keeping with the minimalist nature of the design, the interiors were also kept simple, with just a few select pieces of furniture. From anywhere inside the cabins, sweeping views are provided by the front glass facades, establishing a strong and seamless connection with the outdoors. + Nature Humaine Via Archdaily Photography by Adrien Williams via Nature Humaine

Comments Off on EnjoyTwice Reinvents Discarded Advertising Cardboard with their Geometric Pendant Lamps

Under the flag of design label EnjoyTwice , a handful of designers have been working with difficult to recycle materials since 2009. Their latest product is the EnjoyTwice Light made from recycled advertising cardboard — a material that is very hard to recycle as it is made with plastic and glue. Each light is unique and made in Amsterdam with the utmost care and attention. Their design process was led by the intrinsic merits of the material. These lamps are part of a numbered limited edition and include a hand-signed certificate of authenticity. Hang them from the ceiling or set them on a flat surface for a strong and streamlined look! + EnjoyTwice The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
