The new Bulhomen cabin is split into two main structures that separate day and nighttime activities. Both the southernmost part, where the sleeping cabins are held, and the split-level eastern flank have amazing views of the adjacent bay. And there is definitely no shortage of natural light here.

In addition to providing insulation and capturing rainwater runoff, the sedum-moss roof works with the treated (and sustainably-sourced) pine façade to disguise the building so that it fits in harmoniously with the natural surroundings. Looks like a great spot for a summer break, doesn’t it?
