People’s creativity in architecture and design never cease to amaze me and today’s project is no exception. When I first saw an image of the “Air Cabin” on Instagram, I was stopped in my scrolling tracks amazed at what I was looking at.
A glass home hoovering over the edge of a rocky cliff is not something that you see everyday. Designed by Yakusha Design, this is an original and creative design as a holiday home for a surfer. “Air” is the inspiration behind this stunning glass cabin with a goal to create a feeling of weightlessness.
Prominently positioned to overlook the horizon, directly facing the sea breeze in many ways this cabin is is similar to a modern yet radical light house.
Secured on a foundation made with recycled concrete and set on a vertical pillar, the cabin doesn’t take up a lot of area space but maximizes the view over the Atlantic Ocean. In order to curtail any privacy concerns that the resident may have, there is a integrated system of windows blinds built around the perimeter of the structure. Inside the colour palette is minimal but warm and welcoming allowing the stunning views to take centre stage. The various living zones effortlessly flow into one another throughout the home.
Despite the neutral colour palette on with the interior, visual interest has been created within the interior with different shapes such as round lamps and organic forms for the sofas and textures such as straw surface panels on the walls. The combination creates the perfect refuge to comfortably enjoy the breathtaking views.
This cabin is one of the most memorable that I have ever seen, and I am in awe of the level of creativity that is displayed throughout. What are your thoughts on this cabin? Would you ever consider building a holiday home similar to this? Let me know in the comments below!
