A is for A-Frame

A-Frame cabins and other angles we love…

A-Frame cabins

PAN TREE TOP CABINS, GJESÅSSJØEN, NORWAY

Groundbreaking architecture in breathtaking nature… Majestic, almost otherworldly A-frames on stilts, standing firm among the swaying trees of the boreal Finnskogen, the forest of the Finns, these cabins were described by French Vogue as “the perfect nature refuge”.

A-Frae cabins

SUMAVA COTTAGES, KLATOVY, CZECH REPUBLIC

Glorious gables… Nestled into Sumava National Park, these cabins are inspired by traditional Bohemian dwellings. Simple and functional, they are nevertheless designed with a modernist’s eye and lines that enhance the space and surroundings.

A-Frame cabins

ECO A-FRAME, KIMO VALLEY, AUSTRALIA

Lost in space… Composed of sharp, clean lines and constructed of local timber, galvanized iron and steel, this off-grid A-frame’s sharp silhouette stands out against the epic landscapes of New South Wales.

THE HIDEOUTS, CORNWALL, ENGLAND

Glamping on stilts… Standing like futuristic sentinels among the trees of the forest, these modern hideouts and suspended tree tents form a delightfully unusual, off-grid experience.

SEA CABINS, MANHAUSEN ISLAND, NORWAY

Framing the landscape… Cantilevered over the stone moorings and hovering above the water of the Steigen archipelago, these remote cabins strike bold silhouettes against their Arctic backdrop.

57 NORD, WESTER ROSS, SCOTLAND

Crisp and clean luxury… Clad in timber, this angular Highland cottage is the essence of elegant simplicity inside and out, with open-plan living spaces and perfectly placed windows that frame the unforgettable views.

A-Frame cabins

FAR MEADOW, YOSEMITE, CALIFORNIA

The classic A-frame… Inspired by the prefab A-frames of Fifties America, this cabin sits perfectly within its delightfully remote rural landscape, high in the Sierra Nevadas.

THE BUNKERS, KONKKE, BELGIUM

Strong lines and bold design… With over-sized wooden screens that move across the facades to conceal or reveal the large floor-to-ceiling windows, the interiors of these converted farm buildings are yours to play with, offering unparalleled views of the countryside.
