A charming addition to the long line of splendid backyard micro dwellings, this black timber-clad, triangular garden retreat by Todd Saunders looks like the sweet, laid-back cousin of the architect's own home. The 160-square-foot abode has just enough space for all the necessities of an overnight stay, including a bed, lounge, and bathroom. The breezy refuge also makes the most of its idyllic surroundings: long, horizontal windows frame views of a lake while the outdoor terrace wraps itself around a few old plum trees.
