Gone outside much lately? If not, we can’t blame you, as it’s often easier to stay nestled by the fireplace around this time of year than a campfire. Luckily, though, there may be a new reason for you to venture to the great outdoors with help from Ardh Architects. The designers have showcased a remarkable concept that allows you to take advantage of modern-day camping capabilities while suspended in mid-air.

The Dubai-based creatives aptly-dubbed Floating Retreat is to be placed in the mountains of Sharjah, highlighting the beautiful, natural elements found in the UAE. Moreover, the design was composed alongside the metropolitan city’s developmental leaders, as the two sides hope it promotes environmental awareness — and with views like you’ll find here, it’s hard to imagine standing against it.

Within the region, there are several amenities to partake in that you can compare to your traditional campgrounds, like mountain climbing, scenic hikes, cycling, and so on. More often than not, people taking trips to UAE can’t help but lose themselves in the decadence engulfing cities like Dubai and, namely, Sharjah, so it’s refreshing to see an up-and-coming company aiming to showcase what else the country has to offer tourists and locals. Additionally, there are shops on-site for patrons looking to buy local goods.
