Cabin Looks Exactly Like A Boulder, Blends Perfectly Into Swiss Alps Landscape

Inspired by the Swiss tradition of observing the Alps by “living with them, hiding inside them”, Geneva-based studio Bureau A has created “Antoine”, a mountain cabin that looks just like a boulder on the outside.

Blending in with the surrounding rock fall field, the grey concrete exterior of the cabin conceals a cozy interior space that features wooden walls and basic amenities, including a fireplace, a bed, a table, a stool and a window.

Sitting on its precarious perch on the side of the Alps, this one-of-a-kind cabin was first built in a nearby village before being transported to its current spot—it is designed to be an alpine shelter that is large enough for just one man.

Find out more about Antoine, and view more images of it, on Bureau A’s website.
