Hanging Shelter by Denmark-based Stedse Architects is a unique overnight accommodation floating above the ground just like a treehouse. Combining contemporary design and wood craftsmanship, it offers a nature-filled experience for guests in Genner, Denmark. It will be all about communing with nature for guests but for the architects, it was a chance to explore a new definition of a home.
The Hanging Shelter is a dome-shaped wood and glass structure that allows for an innate connection with nature. Its wooden construction is carried out by Aarøsund Boatbuilding based on traditional shipbuilding techniques.
The main load-bearing structure is built from 8 form-fitting “frames” in oak, with steam-bent rectangular oak moldings as floor and round oak moldings as railings. Furthermore, there are transparent sections all around the structure to maximize the surrounding views.
Hanging Shelter has come into being through a co-operation with several local professionals and companies with the idea to be a peaceful and minimalistic accommodation for a vacation in the woods. If you liked the idea, you can catch up on more details on Stedse Architects’ website.
