On a snowy mountaintop in the Julian Alps bordering Slovenia and Italy, sits OFIS Architekti’s cantilevered cabin retreat. The cabin on Mount Kanin was built for up to nine climbers to seek refuge from the area’s harsh climatic conditions. The site, only accessible by climbing or helicopter, was specifically chosen for its “360-degree views over Slovenia and Italy and spectacular views to Triglav, Soca Valley, and the Adriatic Sea,” the architects explain.
