What would a home look like if you were to design it not for just one specific spot, but a wide range of potential locations? Architectural firm Snohetta answered that question with their Gapahuk Cabin, a home intended to be placed anywhere in the world.

Like putting a puzzle together without knowing its shape, lead architect Anne Cecilie Haug had to think more generally about what a cabin or vacation home should provide its inhabitants rather than the specifics of any one property or location. Haug’s solution to this problem is a brilliant 1,430 square foot single story structure with all the bells and whistles one would want. It boasts a sloped roof that opens up to a porch on one side, features an airy interior, and three levels for adaptability on inclines or declines. The main living room includes a built in sofa for lounging in front of the fireplace, as well as a full kitchen, three bedrooms, and a large outdoor area. No matter where you place it, the cabin’s large windows open up to let in uninterrupted views of the nearby lake, ocean, or mountain range. Adaptability at its best.
