File this under places to go to escape everything and everyone. Designed by Argentinian firm Alric Galindez Arquitectos, this not-so-little house on the prairie is engulfed by sweeping views of the skies, sea, and Pampas, South America's expansive lowlands. The metal and timber structure is propped up on four poles in order to minimize impact on the sand dunes below and features long stretches of glazing and terraces on two sides. The interiors are simple: a compact but open kitchen, dining and living areas on one end and a mezzanine sleeping space on the other—all in all, just enough for a cozy stay amid a backdrop lacking any signs of civilization.
