This Sky-High Italian Tiny Cabin Offers A Cozy Respite For Mountaineers

When touring Italy’s Valle di Susa, one would expect to revel in the area’s serene, mountainous scapes. Its panoramic grandeur seems to have been pulled straight from a storybook, and as the highest point between Val Thuras from Cervières Valley, the region has become a revered location for enthusiastic climbers to partake in their adrenaline-inducing proclivities. Luckily, a long day traversing the countryside has been made all-the-more rewarding, thanks to Cassi + Versaci’s Bivacco Matteo Corradini.

The dark, but endearing shelter serves as a decorative haven for passing climbers, offering a well-insulated metal exterior, a living area clad in Swiss pine, and open-ended sightlines, courtesy of the dwelling’s dual-window layout. The Bivacco Matteo Corradini, or Black Body Mountain Shelter, is anchored atop a rock-strewn outcrop and places a staunch focus on the relationship between the home and its surrounding elements, thanks to an optimized footprint that’s been contrived to limit soil consumption, and promote environmental sustainability. Inside, a centralized socialization area is framed by two sets of steps, which act as seating during the day. At night, the steps provide the perfect location for rest and relaxation, helping expeditionary groups to recoup before an early morning near the summit.
