If you ever feel the need to go somewhere where almost no one can find you, look no further; Italian architect has constructed Bivacco Luca Vuerich, a cabin that is located at the crest of the Foronon Buinz mountains in the Julian Alps of Italy.

Situated 2,531 meters above sea level, the oddly located cabin is a modular wooden structure and is named after the late climber, Luca Vuerich, who was caught in an avalanche three years ago.

The cabin is situated along a summit trail and contains nine beds for hikers, visitors and climbers alike to take refuge or rest. The resting house is composed of 30 prefabricated wooden panels, "three trusses, and a larch-wood floor structure." The structure rests on six short concrete pillars set against the rocky mountain landscape. Stats for Alpine Summit Refuge Cabins Trending: Older & Chilly
