ShelteRelax by Ernesto Di Giorgio and Giuseppe Di Pasqua

ShelteRelax is a two-story, eco-conscious yoga retreat that maximizes the use of locally sourced materials. Two octagonal windows puncture the sides of the wooden cabin while solar panels sit atop its south inclined roof.

Cabin Unfolded by Kenneth Ip

Designed by Kenneth Ip of JOKE Architects, Cabin Unfolded opens up its doors to the environment to strengthen its connection with the landscape and to allow cross breezes through the cabin. Partitions in the building let the user flexibly alter the configuration of the rooms and conserve energy by closing off rooms that don’t require heating.
