Inspired by minimalist Japanese homes, the Bruny Island Hideaway Cabin by Maguire and Devine Architects is an off-grid sanctuary isolated from the noisy city life. Sitting in the middle of lush foliage off the southern coast of Tasmania, this contemporary compact cabin is a perfect place to slow down and enjoy life.
Taking a look inside, the interior only features built-in furniture with the exceptions of the low table and mattress in the upper level. The ground floor of the cabin contains a kitchen, living room, study, bathroom, day bed, and laundry area. Making your way up the ladder to the loft, you’ll find a peaceful sleeping space. Massive windows and sliding doors all around the cabin open up to nature, offering fantastic views of the landscape. There are also two decks to help the owner relax with one of the decks featuring a built-in bath. The cabin utilizes a rainwater collection system, solar panels, and a skylight to invite natural light into the living space, as well as sticking to the client’s brief to keep the dwelling environmentally friendly.Read More
