“Hollow trunk”: a new house shelter
This is “Le Tronc Creux” – a shelter for the night, in nature. Near the city of Bordeaux (France) in a forest, we found a wooden cylinder, a hollow trunk made of natural materials and resembling a fallen tree. This is a special house-shelter, where you can stay for the night, spending the weekend in nature with your family or with friends. French architectural studio Bruit du Frigo has implemented a project to build a series of original dwellings in the territory of a forested area. This hollow trunk is made of a steel frame covered with boards. Provides thermal insulation layers made of recycled wood. Inside is enough space to accommodate 9 people. The cylinder is equipped with three single beds, three double beds, folding table and chairs.
