Drop Box Portable Hotel Suite

Spanish deign studio In-Tenta is expanding on their microarchitecture collection with the Drop Box Portable Hotel Suite. Like the name implies, these modular wooden shelters can simply be dropped into any natural setting with little or no impact on the surrounding environment, allowing you to wake up in some of the world's most remote locations with all of the comforts of a hotel stay. They come in two sizes, a one and two bedroom layout that includes a bathroom with panoramic shower, and an outdoor terrace. Whether you're spending the weekend lakeside or unplugging in the middle of the forest, a floor-to-ceiling glazed wall puts your location on full display.

  • Mount Macedon House

    Placed on the side of its eponymous mountain in the Central Highlands region of Victoria, the Mount Macedon House builds upon the landscape, rather than adapting it to fit the home. The corten-clad portion of the building, necessary to meet brushfire screening codes, holds the three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling glass encases the open kitchen and living room, with screening around the outside providing some privacy and letting in natural light without obscuring the views, best taken in from the rooftop deck.

  • Tipping Cube

    Imagine balancing on the peak of Pic-Saint-Loup in southern France, taking in views as far out as the Mediterranean. Architect Christophe Benichou has visualized this dream-like scenario with his Tipping Cube concept. Accessed by a set of stairs, the viewing platform is encased by a leaning boxed structure made from a perforated roof — providing a needed break from the sun — and a set of opaque sides that force your attention forward to a large opening. This setup creates a 360-degree panorama that stretches from the surrounding Montpellier mountains, out past the Cévennes, and to the sea ahead.
