Designers Elise Morin and Florent Albinet created this mystical floating hut that features a number of missing wall panels. The missing wall panels allow visitors to see clearly through the single-roomed cabin and penetrates the space with natural light.
The original idea for the floating hut -- named the 'Walden Raft' -- was inspired by American author Henry David. The cabin appears transparent and is made entirely of wooden pine panels and pieces of acrylic glass. The structure's materials make it weather-resistant while its polyethylene base acts as its floating support system.
Measuring 10 square meters, the boxed cabin structure is connected to a cable that allows it to move from land to the center of a lake. Visitors are able to move the cabin as they please, making it practical for the adventurous traveler.
