The smell of the tropics would be nice right now. A hot white sun, warming these winter-chilled bones. Mexico’s Oaxaca coast would work just fine. Especially this little concrete cabana, Casa Tiny. It’s available for rent for less than two hundred bucks a night. Adorable, minimalist, modern, and right smack in the jungle, the bathwater warm surf a minute away by foot.
Weekend Cabin isn’t necessarily about the weekend, or cabins. It’s about the longing for a sense of place, for shelter set in a landscape…for something that speaks to refuge and distance from the everyday. Nostalgic and wistful, it’s about how people create structure in ways to consider the earth and sky and their place in them. It’s not concerned with ownership or real estate, but what people build to fulfill their dreams of escape. The very time-shortened notion of “weekend” reminds that it’s a temporary respite.
