If you ever get the opportunity to visit the New Refuge Gervasutti, you can tell people you were literally hanging off the side of a mountain. This one-of-a-kind habitat rests atop of Mt. Blanc and protrudes a great portion of its structure over a beautiful snow-covered cliff. Dangerous? Not likely as its architects, the Italian company LEAPfactory, specializes in crafting modular dwellings for extreme locations.
Observant readers will notice that a series of solar panels sits atop the New Refuge Gervasutti. Though it looks like a fat cigarette on the outside, the interior of the New Refuge Gervasutti is actually quite impressive with electronic furnishings, beds, kitchen tables, drawers and a washroom. To reach this tubular habitat, you’ll need access to a helicopter.
