Culardoch Shieling: Mountain hut by Moxon Architects
Architect: Moxon Architects
Location: Cairngorms National Park (GB)
In their design, the architects sought to enable spectacular views of the surrounding landscape; at the same time the small wooden hut was to have as little impact on the terrain as possible. The unique building's spruce-lined interior is equipped with a wood-burning stove for sufficient heat in the cold months of winter, and at the client's request also features a long table for hosting guests. The simple basic structure crafted in wood has a roof covered in heather, moss and stones – the perfect camouflage in the Highland mountains.
