The "Kujdane" A-Frame Cabin by Shomali Design

Iranian architects Shomali Design have proposed a new type of A-Frame cabin whose design, while remaining true to the original idea of such a structure, shows some beautiful, modern flourishes. The sides do not come together in an expected way, the main deck seems to be cantilevered, and there is a fascinating central glass hole or flue that lets rain and snow fall through the center of the house, collecting in a pond beneath the home. 

There is something so familiar about this structure. Maybe it's because when I as a child, I used to make model homes like this out of small cardboard boxes.
