This design reacts sensitive and responsive environmental noise. The structure of the lodge is like a cocoon. The sliding door can be opened or closed towards the interior space and follows the round shape of the lodge. This “door” protects the residents protects the against the noise of the A6-highway. Opened gives it air, light and space to the nature. We looked at different location possibilities for the lodge to be placed on the campside.

From the edge of the forest, shore including placing in the water the design fits the landscape at different levels. On the groundfloor, like a treehouse and like a floating cocoon, one with the water. The design is very practical in its use and the scale of the lodge is in proportion to the campside.
