The Shack Weekend Retreat

If you live in a hectic city, at weekends you might feel like escaping to a place completely disconnected from technology, this might inspire you. The Shack is a weekend retreat designed by Broadhurst Architects for a family from the suburbs of Washington D.C., it is located on the southern slope of South Fork Mountain, near Upper Tract, West Virginia. The little rural structure is a cross between tent camping, and weekend cottage, it has no electricity (Oil lamps provide light), and features a rain collecting system that provides water for the outdoor shower. Heat is provided by a small wood stove that also heats water for the kitchen sink. The front facing façade of the building features a glass garage door that opens up to a cantilevered wood deck providing a breathtaking view of the beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

SPRUCE STOVE

The Spruce Stove was created by Dutch designers Roel de Boer and Michiel Martens. The unique stove is a new approach to burning wood, it burns one long log, a bit at a time. Simply rest the tree trunk on the wheeled stand and gently push it into the cylindrical stove, the experience lasts as long as the trunk. A camera-aperture-like opening is closed around it. This would definitely look cool in a big open space industrial apartment. via...
