RECOGNITION

The white nylon sheets use button-shaped extrusions on the wooden studs to attach to the structure and can therefore be opened and closed at the visitor’s leisure allowing users to adjust the spaces of the cabin to suit their needs. To minimize the ecological footprint, this building can be mounted on large trees located anywhere along the amber road trekking route. The roof of the cabin is composed of polycarbonate panels which creates a viewport to the sky, making it perfect for stargazing at night.
