A tiny house raised from the ground and immersed in nature.
Architects DRAA, created this home with a lot of input from the owners, a building which creates a low impact on the land, by using a thin concrete platform, out of which, stretches out a buttressed structure, like fingers on a hand, supporting the home.  As you climb the steps, you get to an airlock entrance, with the following areas and rooms: bedroom and bathroom, kitchenette and a sitting room with a massive glazed wall facing north, just above the canopy.  Shangri-La was referenced in the book Lost Horizon, written by author James Hilton.  It's a fantasy / fictional place, where you never age and it's described as being somewhere in the mountains of Tibet.
