There are times when all of us wish to move away from the constant noise that surrounds us and into a setting that is far more tranquil and healthy. A holiday retreat in the woods a summer vacation home perched on the edge of a lofty cliff and overlooking beautiful mountains or even a second home where you spend more than half the time each year enjoying the untouched jungle landscape around you – every one of these ideas does sound like an absolute dream! The hard part of it all is to have both the resources and the ability to build such structures in remote locations. That is until you come across the designed by MAPA.
It is SB Architects that built the first lavish private home of the budding development that is expected to see six more luxury residences in the next year or so. The 7200-sqaure-foot desert estate is all about an open energy-savvy and comfortable living environment where the scenery becomes a part of the overall narrative.
A vacation in the woods is always a magical experience. The peacefulness of the nature and the sense of being away from our fast-paced life is refreshing but one thing that truly makes the experience what it is is staying in a wood cabin.
This large cottage mixes the stone and the wood creating a beautiful rustic piece within the natural scenery. The stone chimney is the most eye-catching element that truly sets the tone for the cottage’s aged presence. A charming cottage with a big deck and big windows is a wonderful getaway place for anyone who loves to have a great view of the nature even from the comfort of the indoors.
This elegant open and modern home designed by Zen Architects relies on passive solar design to cut back on energy consumption and carbon footprint of the structure. Keeping the house warm in winter months and cool during the summer it is the form of the house that ends up being its biggest asset!
A tiny hut in the midst of an open space is a great choice of a secluded residence that proudly represents the tough feeling of a rustic exterior and connects you to the natural textures. Luxury can be enjoyed even deep within the woods. A big wood cottage with a modern design that emphasises the importance of well-lit spaces is the perfect example of a glamorous getaway cabin.
Wood cabins sure have a similar design but each and every one of them is unique in its own way. This spacious cabin is perfect for people who don’t want to give up the comfort of a big home while enjoying the beauty of mother nature. The log cabin experience is made even better with a big deck where warm evenings can be spent in the company of good people. The rustic pieces truly merge with the natural surroundings and create an incredibly old-fashioned setting.
