Cabin porn – the true love for cabin architecture across the world

Cabin porn – the true love for cabin architecture across the world

The world is peppered with inspiring architecture that would make the likes of Kevin McCloud drool. There are some seriously ambitious ideas out there, but sometimes a back to basics approach is all that’s really needed.

Vernacular by nature, cabins win major street cred when it comes to designs that celebrate local needs, construction materials and regional traditions. And to applaud the timeless charm of cabins, we’ve put together a collection of architectural feats from across the globe.

Warning, serious sex appeal awaits…

British summers by the seaside

Brits love the sunshine, yet unfortunately Mother Nature hasn’t blessed their nation with much of it. For this reason, the pebbly shores of the UK are strewn with colourful beach cabins that serve as a refuge for the sunshine that turns beach goers into lobsters, as well as the rain and wind that never ceases to make an eventual appearance.

Scandi-chic

We can’t get enough of Adventure Journal’s latest story on the “cabin that built love.” Designed to reflect a deep connection to tradition, this particular cabin is a nod to traditional Scandinavian life, with stone, wood, and candles serving as keynote motifs within the intriguing network of rooms, passageways, nooks and spaces.

“This house…it is far more feeling than words,” writes Steve Casimiro when describing this stunning creation dreamt up by Asmund Olstad and Bjørg Owren.

‘Nomadic’ architecture

Designed by legendary Copenhagen architect Simon Hjermind Jensen, this egg shaped plywood hut is inspired by the architecture of nomadic people. Interestingly, its lifespan is just 12 months, which reflects the dynamic and ever changing lifestyles of Denmark’s indigenous tribes.

A love affair with Mother Nature

Who needs privacy, when the views are this magical? Engineered to offer an orgasmic user experience, the Glass House by Avanto Architects Kekkilä is a wonderful example of how Finnish pine, gleaming glass and a prefab frame can create irresistible cabin porn.

Forest hideaways

Resembling a giant log, Le Tronc Creux by Bruit du Frigo is a Bordeaux gem. Translating to the ‘hollow trunk,’ the design draws inspiration from the way in which small animals use fallen logs as shelter. Thermal insulation keeps guests cosy in their bunks, while eco-friendly materials minimise environmental impact. Overall, a beautiful idea bought to life.

Sleep like a tree snake

Imagined by Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade, this Portuguese stunner mimics the movements of snakes as they glide between trees. Sexy and sensual are two words that definitively describe this masterpiece.

With these incredible designs in mind, there’s no denying that limiting cabins to the concept of a traditional ‘log’ designs is miserably restrictive. On the contrary, cabins are becoming an increasing focal point for creative architects across the globe. As intrinsically compact buildings, they are a fantastic way to create functional, eco-friendly structures that embrace local surrounds and cultures, as opposed to imposing on them.
