Huts conquer the world! They are our statement that we live free and in wild nature and want to move anywhere, whenever we want. Because of this, modern architects and designers are creating more and more cabins to inspire you to escape outdoors, and this is one of them.
This A-frame cabin is called Phoenix Rising and was designed by Todd Gordon Mather Architect. It is located in the Lake Tahoe region of California. It might not be your typical rustic mountain retreat, but you can still see a few key elements scattered around, like the stone fireplace or the barn doors. Everything has a polished and modern look, but somehow the cabin retains a very warm and cozy character.
The architects opted for a contemporary design approach that gives the cabin a very clean and simple geometry. There are 1,700 square feet of living space in total, and while the cabin is relatively small, its interior is surprisingly airy and open. The 34 foot ceiling and huge windows definitely have a lot to do with it. Also, the design is not as simple as the glazed facades suggest, and this project actually offers great variety.
