Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter recently unveiled new sustainable cabins in a French mountain village. Designed to be ultra-slender, the cabins aim to blend into the landscape "like boulders on a slope." WIth 14 in total, these cabins take after "hyttes," which are small countryside cottages found scattered across Norway. The landscape architect, Leroy-Jönsson, explained his purpose for creating the structures was to give guests a rustic retreat.
"It is the meeting of my two passions, my two cultures; nature and architecture, Denmark and Alsace," said Leroy-Jönsson. "I imagined a space of freedom, open and intimate, where everyone can enjoy the calm of nature. I have created a place to live, simple and friendly, where everyone takes the time to live in a setting of only 14 hytte. More than a hotel, it is a universe."
