This Large Rock Is Truly A Little Camouflaged Cabin In The Swiss Alps


style=”text-align: justify;”>Swiss studio Bureau A designed this peculiar little cabin that appears identical to an unusual boulder to the unsuspecting passersby. Architects Leopold Banchini and Daniel Zamarbide created this straightforward wood cabin and camouflaged its exterior with concrete shell that appears like rock and introduced it to the distant space of the Swiss Alps to make it an artist residency.

style=”text-align: justify;”>With this uncommon cabin design the architects paid the tribute to Swiss author Charles Ferdinand Ramuz’s fundamental character Antoine from his novel “Derborence.” Within the e-book, he is trapped in a landslide in Alpine valley and survives after dwelling below the rocks for seven weeks.

style=”text-align: justify;”>“The mountains have the facility to name for emotions of fascination and concern on the similar time,” stated the architects to Dezeen. “Switzerland has a robust custom of observing the Alps, dwelling with them, hiding inside them.

style=”text-align: justify;”>The cabin accommodates fundamental inside parts – a mattress, a desk, a  stool, a window, and a hearth – to make it comfy to reside for a single individual.
