This compact off-grid cabin in Australia’s New South Wales marries sustainability with simple design.

JR’s hut – available via Airbnb from £200 per night – is a minimal take on the traditional A-frame cabin. Its pitched roof cuts away to reveal huge windows, which look out onto Kimo Estate’s 6,000 acres of rolling hills.

The one-bedroom hut borrows from the agricultural vernacular of the area, with architects Anthony Hunt and Luke Stanley choosing corrugated iron for its pitched roof, and constructing the cabin using locally sourced and sustainable ash. Solar energy powers the cabin, which is completely off-grid.

Inside, there’s enough room for two to cosy up around the woodburning stove. The shower comes with impressive views across the river flats – and with no nearby neighbours, guests won’t have to worry about being caught in the buff.
