slanty bothy concept cabin

client: home and cabin magazine

location: Newfoundland

use: public

scale: 80 ft2

A daring and playful concept design, this minimal shelter, which is anchored and sloped over the side of a cliff, is an unlikely place to seek refuge. It is intended to remain unlocked and available for anyone to use free of charge while they hike and sightsee along the cliffs.


As visitors approach the cabin, they step onto a wooden walkway that leads them inside. The cabin’s wooden interior contains space for a small group of visitors to relax while warming up by the fire and enjoying the view. Large windows angled toward the ocean allow visitors to experience unique views of the water below.


The Slanty Bothy concept cabin was a project for an issue of Home and Cabin Magazine.
