Enjoy The Views Of A Glacial Lake From The Warmth Of This Multi-Tiered Shelter

Best-known for his radical and outside-the-box conceptual renders, French architect, Christophe Benichou is a designer with a vibrant imagination. From transparent structures built into the side of towering cliffs to a small shack precariously perched on the summit of a mountain, Benichou’s works routinely play with the idea of utilizing remote and unorthodox locations. And Benichou’s latest work continues this theme, with the designer this time penning a boxy building embedded into the side of a hill overlooking a glacial lake.

Named, “Sliding Shelter,” the rectangular bit of respite outwardly appears to be sitting at a 20-30-degree angle, though inside the timber-lined structure boasts four terraced levels separated by staircases running alongside the wall of the building. The upper-most level is comprised of a bathroom while the next level down is the bedroom area, the one after that is the kitchen, and then finally a lounge area with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the aforementioned glacial lake and a woodturning stove suspended from the sloped ceiling. In order to keep the otherworldly cold out of the shelter, the entrance features a multi-door thermal airlock. Not unlike a tiny house, the conceptual structure does a stellar job of maximizing the efficiency of the building’s limited space, with a myriad of drawers and shelves integrated into the walls and levels in the different floors.
