Belgium-based Ark Shelter “wants to go back to the basics by providing a living place within nature.” That’s why the outfit makes modern, minimal and mobile homes that sit on floating foundations. Each of the stylish shelters can be placed anywhere from your backyard to next to a lake if there’s enough space. The exquisitely appointed wooden shelters are cabins, homes, offices or even event spaces depending on what you’re looking for. We’re talking a dark, slatted exterior that gives way to a natural wood interior with bed space, tables, built-in cabinets and kitchenettes, along with the options for skylights, terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows. Whether you’re using it for a writer’s retreat for yourself, or an off-the-grid Airbnb rental to generate some extra income, one of the Ark Shelter configurations will fit the bill.
