Looking to get away from it all? A new book just published showcases a selection of unique cabins, getaways and hideouts nestled amongst nature in different destinations all around the world.
Featuring rustic retreats in countries such as Italy, Latvia, Hungary, Germany, Canada and the United States, The Hinterland book celebrates escaping urban spaces to appreciate architecture that blends well with natural surroundings. The collection features portraits of the architects and inhabitants of the destinations, offering an insight into why they decided to create the distinctive retreats.
People pictured in the series include Lilah Horwitz and Nick Olson, a couple that decided to build an intimate shack in the West Virginia woods by themselves. The structure features a distinctive wall of mismatched windows on one side of the building.
The book also features Peter Becker, a travel loving entrepreneur that built the Robin’s Nest tree house hotel over a six month period in a forest in Germany. After visiting different destinations around the world, Becker felt a need to reconnect with nature and began building a business that would allow him to escape the city limits.
The collection can be seen in full in The Hinterland book that is available now from Gestalten Books.
