These Geometric Cabins Glow Like Lanterns in a Vietnamese Forest

Two striking eco-friendly cabins sit lightly upon the land near Dalat, Vietnam.

Designed by Ho Chi Minh City–based Mỹ An Architects, these rectilinear cabins provide workspaces and accommodations for up to 10 people working at the nearby Ta Nung Homestay resort. Sited in a lush highland landscape approximately 11 miles from Dalat, Vietnam, the two separate cabins are connected by a shared structural base which is elevated on stilts to help protect the forest floor.

Built from locally sourced pine, the 5,400-square-foot project quietly blends into its natural setting. The cozy, richly textured interiors feature thoughtfully placed windows that frame beautiful forest views while welcoming in plenty of daylight.

The project—dubbed the Executive Office of Ta Nung Homestay—is designed to foster collaboration among workers who help run the resort’s administration system, all while providing a peaceful, environmentally sensitive retreat.

Balconies along the side of each cabin overlook expansive mountainous views.
