Designed by Geneva-based architecture firm Bureau – A, a well-camouflaged one-room wood cabin called “Antoine” is tucked inside a massive concrete boulder and built in the Les Ruinettes, Swiss Alps.
Yes, indeed, it would be outstanding to have at least 1 month experience living in a Flintsones – like cottage where are no roads or people around for miles. But. But it’s balanced for weekend campers.
What I like utmost is that this itsy bitsy house provides a rare kind of privacy by blending in with the surroundings, without creating a visual disturbance in the environment.
Inside its rough, grey facsimile of stone you’d find a perfectly-detailed wooden cabin, complete with a small bed, a fold-down table, a window, even a fireplace and it all easily blend into its environment because of its rock-like shape and cladding. The interior is left bare with pine wood and furniture that folds into the walls to create a comfortable space for a fortuitous inhabitant. process of painting the exterior to look realistic. ↓
