Frank Lloyd Wright Student Builds Tiny Desert Dwelling

Frazee used the existing stone chimney and concrete walls as a base for his shelter project, placing the steel and glass box on its sturdy concrete pad.

Waterfront Cabanas in Portugal

Named Cabanas no Rio, which translates as cabins on the river, the two rustic structures offer a rural retreat for a pair of inhabitants.

One hut contains a living area, with a simple counter that can be used for preparing food, while the other accommodates a bedroom with a small toilet and sheltered outdoor shower.

Architects Aires Mateus used recycled wooden panels to build the walls, floors, roof and fittings of the two structures, leaving the material exposed both inside and out.” – Dezeen
