Amsterdam architecture studio The Way We Construct has constructed a mobile cabin with a timber domed interior at a campsite inside the Robbenoordbos forest in the north of the Netherlands.
The 15-square-metre cabin has been created as a “meditational nature retreat” at the Het bos roept – which translates as The forest is calling – campsite close to the Dutch coast.
“The cabin is meant for metropolitan men and women seeking to rejuvenate close to nature in order to escape the digital pollution of currently,” mentioned Arjen Aarnoudse, co-founder of The Way We Construct.
The very simple cabin is constructed from a series of poplar wooden arches that assistance the building’s roof and enliven the interior.
“Its constructive poplar wooden arches generate a dome structure, which provides guests a chapel-like feeling,” Aarnoudse told Dezeen.
“In the history of religious architecture the dome shape was employed as a reproduction of a shelter amongst the earthly and the supernatural,” continued Aarnoudse.
“The type of the arches and the domes aid the guests to reconnect with themselves and generate constructive power for meditation.”
One particular of the arches springs from a central column that divides a bed space at the rear of the cabin from the compact living and kitchen region.
