As far as hopelessly scenic cabins go, this one overlooking the crystalline Todos los Santos Lake in southern Chile is hard to beat. Surrounded by forests and several volcanoes, the 1,300-square-foot cabin retreat by Chilean studio Apio Arquitectos gives off surprisingly warm and cozy vibes. To minimize interference with the steep-sloped site, the designers perched the structure on a system of pillars and steel beams. The home, fronted by a long, covetable timber deck, fits two sleeping areas around a central open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area. All the furniture inside is constructed from excess building materials from the project, including metal frames and wood.
