Happy Friday! Welcome to another end of the week. As usual, we're here with an installment of Friday Cabins, our weekly newsletter covering everything cabins–from news, projects, design tips and tricks, and more.
To celebrate NYC's clearer skies today, we're keeping it easy and breezy and headed to Italy, where a recent eco-hotel has caught our attention. Featuring futuristic A-frames overlooking vineyards and rolling woodland, Little Leisure Lodge (LILELO) has us dreaming of an Italian summer, even though we may be a year late to the hoopla.
So take a quick coffee break, read on, and then head into the weekend!
👩🌾 These Modern A-Frame Cabins in Italy are Inspired by Haystacks
Located about two hours west of Milan, Italy and designed by Atelier LAVIT, Little Leisure Lodge (LILELO) is a recently completed eco-hotel made with sustainable materials and an eco-friendly approach.
The mini-hotel consists of three A-frame cabins arranged as a village, with a fourth serving as a communal space for guests.
At about 450 square feet, the interior of each guest cabin is arranged as an open plan and features a breakfast nook, sleeping area, en-suite restroom, deck, and outdoor hot tub.
The communal cabin features a dining area, self-check-in, bike equipment, two electric car charging ports, wifi, and a community notice board.
Made of prefabricated larch panels treated only with oil, the cabins A-frame structure is inspired by traditional haystacks and ancient farming, although a shade structure flys off the tip of the roof, creating a more modern silhouette.
The cabins are also elevated off the ground in order to offer better views and leave the ground unobstructed below.
Additional services at LILELO include the ability to book a private chef and walking or biking tours of the area. The cabins are now available to rent and cost around $300/night.
