Mobile Wooden Shelter Can Be Placed Anywhere Within Nature

You might already be familiar with the term “glamping,” or glamorous camping that provides you with the conveniences of home while you're in the wilderness. The Soul Box by the studio Allergutendinge does just this with their mobile, wooden shelter. You can immerse yourself in idyllic views of nature and sleep under a sturdy roof at the same time.

Soul Box is a minimalist, two-storey building that features a kitchen and bed on the lower floor with a viewing platform on the upper one. The bed is set at a mid-height and meant as both a place to sleep and a step towards the top. Once upstairs, the roof opens to let sunlight and a nice breeze in, allowing for peaceful contemplation. Likewise, the front of the structure also folds down to create a small patio.

Allergutendinge's inspiration for Soul Box came from “the dream of Arcadia,” which is the idea of an imaginary, pleasant paradise where you live in harmony with nature. Of course, we must eventually return to our everyday lives, and the designers planned for this. The wood frame construction can be disassembled to transport back home.
