As the weekend comes closer, I get drawn into looking at cabins because all I can think of is a few relaxing days away from the collective chaos of the world. I bet all of us feel that way right now and my cabin obsession regularly returns each weekend so I have decided to share my newest find – this conceptual glamping pod called Lara!
The minimal circular cabin is a luxurious treat we deserve! One of Lara’s most exclusive features is a round patio complete with a jacuzzi and a lounging area. While the cabin is envisioned to be set amidst trees to provide privacy, the designer has added a handful of plants to brighten up the woody design of the patio. The white exterior contrasts elegantly with the lush natural location. The tiny cabin’s ground level hosts a sem-circular room with a modern fireplace – the ones where there is a slit in the stone for the flames! It also has a fully functioning bathroom, however, the provisions for a pantry or a small cooking space is missing for now. There is another small seating area just outside the room and the fireplace built inside is also shared by this space through the glass encasement. Even though the glamping pod is small, the sweeping floor to ceiling windows makes the space look bigger while allowing for natural sunlight and ventilation.
Lara is a beautiful getaway house and if a kitchenette is added, I will willingly move here as long as the work from home trend continues. Or maybe I just move there with a grill and then have a 6 month long BBQ party for one to make up for the lost summer of 2020.
