The Huba Shelter Has No Right Angles, Yet it's Spot-On Amazing

What image appears in your mind when you contemplate the concept of a prefabricated home? It's probably quite boxy, and therefore absolutely nothing like the Huba Shelter. Nevertheless, this little lodge would be made en masse to this quirky form and taken by truck, train or helicopter to some of the more remote regions that are visited by tourists.

Michal Holcer and Malgorzata Blachnicka suggest that the abstract cabin would be made using the wood of fallen trees as cladding and recycled plastic for many of the interior elements. Now how's that for an especially eco-friendly dwelling! Inside you'd find entirely green facilities to service the Huba Shelter, from solar panels to rainwater collection. Two collapsible beds and a place to wash make the remote refuge an oasis in the mountains and forests that beckon for adventure.
