This small cabin is located on Big Island in Hawaii, only 5 miles from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a daring area which not many adventure into. This unusual destination offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing getaway in a lush area full of trees and vegetation while still feeling adventurous. The cabin is small and has a total footprint of only 488 square feet (45.3 square meters). It was designed by studio Koa Architects LLC with a classic gable roof and a simple and bright interior with white walls and large windows.
There’s only one large interior volume where all the living and sleeping areas are connected. A comfortable modern sofa occupies one section of the room together with a coffee table and a wall-mounted TV. In here there’s also a small corner space with an accent table and a couple of chairs.
The sleeping area occupies the remaining floor space, with the bed being placed parallel to the patio. There’s also a kitchen equipped with all the basic appliances and generous storage space as well as a bathroom with a walk-in shower, a laundry nook and a bright and stylish decor overall. The roof and the exterior walls extend beyond these volumes to form a sheltered patio accessible via a large sliding glass door. Out here there’s room for a cozy sitting area as well as for a cedar soaking tub. A few meters away there’s a modern fire pit with wood log seating around it and beyond that is the forest. The view is lovely during the day and mysterious at night as the fire pit lights up the nearest trees and the deep darkness spreads all around it.
