In 2014, Olson Kundig Architects designed versatile and compact elevated cabins that could withstand flooding, and in 2018, the same design has been applied to the six Rolling Huts—a set of modernized camping shelters in Methow Valley, Washington.

There is a rising behavioral pattern among city dwellers, who actively seek out a digital detox and a semi-solitary escape from the urban environment. Glamping satisfies those requirements and is specifically accessible for those who aren't too keen on traditional camping, setting up tents and cooking on open fire. The six Rolling Huts are fully compatible with this concept, as well as mobile, secluded and with their very own 19th century-inspired fire place. The geometric architecture is seamlessly integrated within Methow Valley. With their compact all-wood interior, these modernized camping shelters seem like the perfect compromise between contemporary design and wilderness.
