Location: Switzerland

The Eco-Temporary Refuge is specifically designed for climbers. Stay in a mountain top cabin that is solar-powered and moved around by helicopters. Does it really get better than that? According to Inhabitat, "The simple design has room for six bunks, a bath, a foyer, and living space. One huge window overlooking the breathtaking views can also let in precious solar heat. When the sun goes down, a thermal curtain helps keep the heat in. The cabin is supported by a 4kW solar array mounted on the walls to keep snow from covering it. The array supplies basic electricity for the occupants of course, but the designers also intend to heat the cabin with an under-floor heating system."
