Skuta Mountain Shelter by OFIS

Category: Living

Beautiful views are always important when it comes to where you lay your head. The Skuta Mountain Shelter, set atop the mountain of the same name, gives absolutely gorgeous visuals.

The design was original conceptualized by students at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and was then adapted by OFIS and AKT II to be placed on the peak of the mountain, which is located in the Kamnik Alps. It’s built to withstand the rigors of high-altitude life, which includes wind, snow, landslides and rough terrain. It’s built using fiberglass-reinforced concrete. It also has thin-walled concrete panels with large windows on either end, giving breathtaking views of the valley below.
