Cabanas no Rio by Aires Mateus Lisbon studio Aires Mateus used only reclaimed timber to construct this pair of waterfront cabins in Grândola, Portugal (+ slideshow). Named Cabanas no Rio, which translates as cabins on the river, the two rustic structures offer a rural retreat for a pair of inhabitants. One hut contains a living area, with a simple counter that can be used for preparing food, while the other accommodates a bedroom with a small toilet and sheltered outdoor shower. Architects Aires Mateus used recycled wooden panels to build the walls, floors, roof and fittings of the two structures, leaving the material exposed both inside and out. The edge of the roof sits flush with the walls, plus the wood is expected to change colour as it exposed to the weather. "The wharf is medieval and assembled with wood," said the architects, explaining their material choice.

AIR FORMS - DomeShells Superior Dome Building Systems Domeshells manufactures air-forms to order. We use a high quality, reinforced PVC fabric. Reinforced PVC fabric comes in different thickness (weight). For air-forms up to 7.0m in diameter we use approximately 470 gms fabric increasing in weight as the diameter size increases. Some systems leave the air-form over the shell for waterproofing in which case the UV properties of the air form need to be the best possible. If you intend to remove the air-form and use an alternative waterproofing system then-n we use a lower grade PVC. He Says He Lives In This Tiny Camper. When He Shows The Inside? Unbelievable! For years, Paul Elkins has been touring the country in what he calls a “stealth camper.” You’re not going to believe this one until you see. First of all, unlike most other small homes we see, this one is attached to a bicycle. It weighs only 60 pounds and only cost Paul $150 to make! He used four recycled fluted-plastic campaign signs that he scored from a recent election, a $20 used bike, six pine boards he got for a dollar at Home Depot, duct tape, zip ties, and screws. But his “home away from home” isn’t just shelter.

Sliding walls move to create various layouts inside Garden House Timber and glass walls slide along runners to reveal or enclose this gabled garden shed in Eindhoven, designed and built by Caspar Schols as a hobby space for his mother. Schols designed the pavilion with no formal architecture training after his mother asked for a pavilion that could be used for dinner parties with friends, theatre performances by her grandchildren, painting and meditating. The Garden House sits on the edge of a pond in Schols' parents' garden. It is made almost entirely of douglas fir wood and at first glance looks like a typical garden shed. But Schols separated the inner beam-and-glass structure from the outer wooden walls and metal roof and set them on runners.
