Cabin fever is a hell of a thing — especially if you’re cooped up in a small city apartment. However, if we were lucky enough to retreat to a villainous secret hideout ala Antony Gibbon’s ‘Stealth House,’ we’d be more apt to count our blessings in this time of quarantine and self-isolation.
Much to our chagrin, this alpine edifice is actually a concept rendering and doesn’t exist in real life. That being said, the design is very doable — from its angular exterior that mimics the surrounding geology to its somehow both cozy and open internal floorplan. Along with floor-to-ceiling windows that would allow residents unencumbered views of the snowy mountains all around, the structure boasts a two-story format connected by a steel spiral staircase, a roomy and fully-featured kitchen with its own gorgeous views, and — if that rooftop chimney is any indicator — a wood fireplace for keeping warm on those especially chilly mountain nights. Here’s to hoping this magnificent concept actually gets built.
