a room in the mountains

We have been here in Manila a few more days, and while the local scenery more than suffices, I couldn't help but notice a beautiful one-room mountain retreat, created by architect/designer Olle Lundberg, highlighted in my daily ApartmentTherapy.com email. Amazing how these things (slum living and extreme poverty and hand-crafted mountain retreats) can co-exist in the same world; how each possess elements of ingenuity, beauty, and creativity and are handcrafted by their inhabitants.
