Blending into organic contexts does not necessarily mean mimicking nature – after all, a stack of felled trees looks nearly as natural as a forest full of them to anyone driving down a rural road.

Hence Yeta, which “resembles the stacks of tree trunks that typically dot Alpine pastures and forests.” At its simplest, this is a room with a view – and notably: a bathroom-with-shower and mini-kitchen, too.

It could be a study space, research lab or overnight shelter as needed for “provincial parks and camping grounds”. The wood-clad exterior provides insulation on three sides and camouflage on the fourth, too, when closed.

Designed by Flavio Galvagni for Alpine environments, one could easily imagine this in American state parks or really anywhere with trees, since, for better or worse, the timber industry always follows.
