Stone-Shaped Sculpture Micro Cabin in the Swiss Alps

This post contains affiliate links.

This micro cabin is shaped like a boulder and sits in a sculpture park in the Swiss Alps.

Inside you’ll find that it’s really basic. There’s no kitchen, shower, or toilet.

The tiny cabin is built out of wood that’s surrounded by a concrete shell.

You’ll find just one window, a skylight, and a door to get in and out.

The stone cabin was created by A-Bureau architecture firm and photographed by Dylan Perrenoud.

The cabin is named Antoine, after a character from a novel, Derborence, by Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz.

In the book, Antoine, falls from the rocks and ends up having to spend 7 weeks living within the rocks before escaping.

    This is so creative. Just wonder about that placement. Looks like it might roll down the hill.

    Well, you certainly can’t fault these guys for ruining the landscape with ugly architecture. You’d be hard pressed to even identify the place.

    And can you imagine the directions for dinner guests? Oh, count three boulders over and two boulders forward, then look for a boulder with an exhaust stream!
