This 16 sqm cabin is made of wood, and elevated from the rocks over 6 concrete columns. All elements have been manufactured and cut with a CNC machine and transported to the site by helicopter.
Inspiration from architect:
not only remembers the form of a chapel, but is designed to support heavy snow loads that can be stored during the winter. Three façades are completely submerged in the snow, and the access is done in the south side
