Modern architecture and contemporary design can be found on all corners of the globe. Today we take a look at a unique cabin that is found in quite a rural and rustic location. The Bivouac Zoran Simic Cabin is situated between the Visočica and Bjelašnica mountain ranges. From here, it boasts unrivaled views of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The location is an intersection where trekking paths cross the Rakitnica canyon, connecting the two mountains in the process.
The cabin offers a unique and comfortable space for passing hikers to rest while taking in some incredible scenery. Inside the shelter are three platforms that offer space for beds or benches. It boasts room for up to nine visitors, while large glazed panels flank the interior.
These windows provide incredible views to the north and south, while also providing plenty of natural light for the interior. The cabin’s unique exterior is formed around the interior. This minimizes the footprint while reducing disruption to the natural terrain. The structure is eye-catching and functional, providing a much-needed space to relax after a long day of hiking.
Take a closer look at the Bivouac Zoran Simic Cabin in the images below and find out more about the design from Filter Architecture. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more modern design and architecture coming very soon.
