S. Faure présente près de 200 cabanes, créées par des designers, construites dans des jardins ou installées dans des arbres. Conçues pour s'isoler ou pour y recevoir, elles répondent aux critères de l'habitat d'aujourd'hui et sont devenues un thème de prédilection pour les architectes et les designers. ©Electre 2023

Whether your idea of paradise is whiling away the hours in a treetop hideaway, cocooning in a snow-capped cabin in the Canadian woods, sunning yourself outside a candy-colored beach hut, or camping in a rustic lean-to worthy of Huck Finn, Hideaways offers you over 200 slices of heaven. From a house designed by Le Corbusier to a humble garden shed, and from a ramshackle lakeside retreat to ultra-modern spaces, these backyard kingdoms and vacation getaways span three continents and illustrate how daily stress and the quest for privacy have rendered hideaways the perfect escape for free spirits of all ages who just need a little space.

Every adult can recall the unrestrained freedom they felt in their special childhood hideaway-a platform in the backyard tree, a blanket "tent" forming a secret world under the kitchen table, or a fort in the woods. Hideaways demonstrates how adults recreate these retreats in the form of fishing cabins, garden huts, weekend studios, and other intimately-designed spaces where the owner is often more "at home" than they are at home. Sometimes spontaneous, sometimes planned to a purpose, these personalized buildings offer a fantastic range of styles, each driven by the desire to create a place where one can truly relax.

A comprehensive list of useful names and addresses is included in this book, making it ideal for anyone planning to create their own retreat as well as those looking for a unique holiday break, whether that means hitting the road in a gypsy caravan or getting away from il all in a lakeside cabin.
