Maralah Cliff House

The name translates to "person who was born during an earthquake" and we can see why. The Maralah is a cabin crafted into the side of a hill Calgary, Canada that is meant to help get its inhabitants away from the city. Overlooking the Bow river, this small getaway is 45 square meters and constructed entirely from matte black steel, glass and raw concrete. The architects incorporated the local surroundings and elements into their design - for example, the bedroom is tucked under the reading area and kitchen and sits next to raw exposed limestone. The roof tucks partially under the ground and helps the home blend even further into the cliffs side. All in all this is the perfect isolated cabin for those looking to take a breath from the busyness of the modern world.

Parkipelago - Artificial Island Chain
This is a pretty neat find for 'real estate' fans. Fokstrot - a Danish design studio - has started a project called the Copenhagen Islands. The islands are actually man-made platforms that will be daisy-chained throughout Copenhagen's southern harbor to resemble a sort of 'parkipelago.' Each platform will serve a unique purpose: a cafe, a sauna, a diving board, a mussel farm - and as a chain they can support full-featured event space for concerts gatherings and festivals. Using clean design and simple aesthetic, these islands are a smart way to take advantage of the beautiful and abundant Copenhagen waters and attract tourists and locals alike.
