appearing to have simply rolled up out of nowhere ‘le tronc creux’ created by french designers bruit du frigo is a portal-like shelter built for the great outdoors. constructed by zébra3/buy-sellf and financed by CUB (communauté urbaine de bordeaux) it is part of a series that are spread out around bordeaux, the small dwellings are originally conceived from the idea of forming a hiking path surrounding the city, helping to connect the waste lands, parks and forests. the circular volumes provide local inhabitants with the option of escaping on a short holiday – without traveling far from home. featuring an undulating façade of cut-out windows and black wooden details marking its exterior, the structure is atypical to most mountain refuges. however, it still provides a similar atmosphere and purpose, and on the interior there is enough space to sleep 9 people comfortably. reconnecting to a simple life, there are no lights and no water, just family and friends in a peaceful setting, right next to home.
