Ever since the A-Frame was first invented in 1934, it’s served as an architectural staple for those looking to build off the beaten path. However, as the iconic cabin has grown in popularity over the years, its design has started to look, well, a bit dated. Thankfully, an Iranian architect by the name of Milad Eshtiyaghi has envisioned a concept that breaks from the mold.
At first glance, it’s pretty clear that this A-Frame is not for the faint of heart. Precariously perched over the edge of a cliff in an imagined Mendocino, California setting, it’s held in place by a set of five high-tensile cables and a large foundation mast. What’s more, Eshtiyaghi has given his rendering a hanging transparent viewing platform complete with a daybed and seating area. (If you think that sounds perilous, just check out the swing.) Inside, you’ll find that the cabin’s interior design is just as astonishing as its outer facade. A lofted office space overlooks a spacious kitchen and dining room, while the support structure hides a bathroom fed by its own waterfall. Unfortunately, Eshtiyaghi’s creation has yet to be built, but we can only hope that it comes to fruition.
