Dwellings needn't be fanciful to be aesthetically impressive (and, more importantly, to provide all the necessities). Case in point, this chic cabin designed by Melbourne-based Jackson Clements Burrows Architects, the Moonlight Cabin on the coast of Victoria, Australia. Overlooking the vast ocean, the cabin's vertical wooden exterior blends in with its grassy surroundings. The compact 60-square-meter (about 645 square feet) cabin features largely open-plan interiors and a central pod-like volume that opens up to become a patio or can be kept closed to retain a more open space. It's also got water harvesting capabilities and coated in rainscreen to protect the timber from the elements. For a tiny cottage, it packs in quite a bit.
