Perched precariously on Mount Kanin, in Slovenia’s Julian Alps, architectural firm OFIS’ Kanin Winter Cabin takes mountain accommodation to new extremes. And this is an extreme place: more than 2,000 metres high, dotted with caves, abysses and ravaged by extreme wind, rain and snowfall. Your reward for climbing through all that is the view across the Slovenian-Italian border from the snug 104-square-foot aluminium and timber cabin. The cabin is currently in its testing phase – so best to write to OFIS about snagging a bunk.
