Perched on a cliff above Bob's Lake in Ontario, this wee summer structure playfully takes minimalism to the extreme. The 64-square-foot shelter was designed to fulfill just two functions, sleeping and leaping into the adjacent lake.
Designed by Studio North, the Dream/Dive Platform contains a screened-in sleeping area with a waxed canvas cloth that can be unrolled and tied down during inclement weather. The other half of the cantilevered structure, a diving board, extends over the lake below, offering the perfect place to jump out into the waters below.
The simple structure was built with salvaged materials and a few extra 2x4s from the local hardware store. It's got us dreaming of balmy summer days and nights spent star-gazing.
