omb has designed a minimal footprint refuge
Last year, thousands of us stayed home all the time and realized the importance of having a place to breathe. The movement to leave the big cities has already started, and it is possible to do it without giving up your contemporary lifestyle, like the Bowen island house in British Columbia created by the Vancouver-based office Mcfarlane Biggar Architects, the omb.
This house was designed to last, to be a refuge, a cabin in the woods, but much more refined. The materials chosen and the entire structure enhance the place where the house is, a natural paradise with all the modern comfort.
Look how the walls were replaced by windows, allowing natural light in until sunset. Can you imagine the sunset from this place?
To build with a minimal footprint, omb chose durable materials like leather for the interior. And leather matches with this type of place, not only for its handcrafted characteristics but also due to its comfort and ease of taking care. You don't go to this house to worry about your dog sleeping on the Eames Chair, right?
If you’re still stuck in the city, we hope that omb's refuge inspires you. Pick some plants and a good chair and chill.
