Designed by Nicos Yiatros of NYDE Studio, the Diagonal Dwelling drops a sleek, sloping retreat in the rugged landscape of the Scottish Highlands. Its unconventional shape isn't just for shock value. The 55-degree angle allows inhabitants to take in the surroundings from three different levels while also minimizing the project's footprint and maximizing solar panel efficiency. Although compact, its interior houses a kitchenette, living space, mini-bar, and bedroom with floating bed as well as an outdoor hot tub and cantilevering terrace. The contemporary concept also operates off-grid and is factory prefabricated in 20 weeks with on-site assembly in less that 10 days.
