Covid 19 pandemic has brought a new point of view to architecture emphasizing the importance of open spaces and remote working. Regarding this situation, we have come up with the idea of V cabin, which is a temporary hut, equipped with essential facilities in a mountainous region. More importantly, it can be considered a solution to meet human being-nature relationship demands which have been more prominent during the pandemic period.
We have developed a concept of folded structure to achieve a desirable interior space. In other words, the shelter is a room folding in cross-section with a minimized footprint helping to mold internal space. On the ground floor, we have a simple space to relax and chill out, and a stepladder connects us to an amazing world off the ground; a sleeping area and a reading space with a glass roof to view a spectacular vista of the mountains and starry sky. Moreover, we have convenient access to a restroom facility in the vicinity of the shelter which is designed to be of a nature view as well.
The walls of the V cabin are made up of concrete from the outside to be consistent with harsh weather conditions, and wood from the inside to bring a sense of nature and vitality to the room.
To put it in a nutshell, V cabin is an attempt to use the best of the minimum space efficiently, and provide a cozy place for those people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a while.
