Hide and Seek: Cabins and Hideouts responds to our yearning for simplicity, clarity, and relaxation that often leads us into nature. This book showcases the most beautiful places for satisfying this yearning. More and more people are longing to live in harmony with nature. However they don't want or can't give up their homes in the city or make radical changes to their lives. Many are therefore opting for creating their very own retreats in nature.
These highly individual structures offer their owners an exceptional, yet convenient way of escaping from their urban routines, and concept is more important than space. As you might expect, the architecture and interior design are rustic, bucolic, and simple - dedicated to turning a small plot of land into a sanctuary for relaxation. There are many inspiring examples of getaways in nature from locations in forests, on the water, or in the mountains. The retreats vary widely from light and minimalistic or dark and cozy, and demosntrate how some have created locations that offer calm and balance to hectic lives.
The many examples meld traditional architecture with modern living in fascinating and surprising ways. Although individual solutions are very different from each other, all of them respect nature and focus on the essentials. Hide and Seek is a contemporary survey of contextual architecture and interior design that radiates inner strength.
