Autonomous Tent Cocoon The word ‘tent’ does not quite call to mind a sense of permanence or even a whole lot of free space, but all the same, people and companies like the Autonomous Tent Co. based out of Colorado are turning out gorgeous and bold designs that are tough enough to last as long as a cabin. For example, the company just installed their Tent Cocoon at the TreeBones Resort in the South of Big Sur. While this is most definitely a tent, with a tough fabric pulled tightly over large metal ribs, it does not look like one from the inside. This Cocoon features a 500 square foot space with a king sized bed, full bathroom with a claw foot tub and flushable composting toilet. In addition to the great indoor area, the front of the tent features floor to ceiling windows and a large deck area for hanging out on and reading a book while you look out over the Pacific.

The Neiling II House About 30 miles outside of Berlin, Germany the landscape gets a tad rural and monotonous. However, the rugged wilderness setting in this part of the country gave architect Peter Grundmann the chance to create a forest-dwelling that was both minimal in style but contemporary in form; suited to blend in with the landscape, not detract from its surroundings. Dubbed the House Neiling II, it’s comprised totally from glass and wood, including a beautiful glass facade, a handful of homemade furniture and a custom bathroom and kitchen thanks to Grundmann’s collaboration with Thomas Pohl. The motivation for the project surrounds the ideas of an old barn, venturing into the territory of low-cost, prefabricated materials that yield a modern look. Inside, glazed walls and the open floor plan result in a bright living space complimented with brick, and stone interior with plywood furniture that feeds into the home’s rustic and warm aesthetic.

Pan Speed Shop Meka Motorcycle Sometimes, when people decide to open up a custom vehicle shop – motorcycle, car, or otherwise – it can take years of planning and work to get off the ground.

This Spanish firm, born from the minds and experience of Pedro Garica-Tapia and Efraón Triana, was just formed in June of 2016, but they’ve already released their first project, The Pan Meka Motorcycle, and it is a thing to behold.
