The tourist shelter was created as part of the adaptation of the dilapidated gamekeeper’s lodge to a cultural and tourist center. The location is a well-known crossroads of hiking, cross-country and biking trails or a place for skating on a frozen lake. Now you can also experience the art, enjoy a snack and spend the night in a shelter. The typology, which usually stands alone in the forest, acquires a new cultural dimension. During the day the building opens with its front facade and communicates area programs. It serves as a gallery, stage or teahouse. On the other hand, at night it closes its gates and provides privacy for a smaller group of tourists. You would hardly search to find a door.
What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
Doors on the front facade that can separate and connect visitors with nature or cultural center.
