Poetic City Rooftop Hideaway in Athens

Architects Panos Dragonas and Varvara Christopoulou believe there is no longer anywhere remote enough to build a wilderness hideaway, so have instead proposed a cabin raised above the Athens rooftops.

This prompted the Greek architects to develop a new structure that allows the contemporary city dweller to escape a taxing daily routine without venturing into the wilderness.

Their proposal, named Detached, comprises a small cabin of just nine square metres. It takes the form of a typical wooden shed, but is also elevated above the city’s rooftop landscape on four slender columns.
