Z_lab pitches pyramid-shaped lodges on a south korean glamping site

in south korea where camping parks are not permitted due to legislation, a private resort on jeju island, named ‘around follie’, still looks to share the camping culture. surrounded by the island’s natural environment, the site allows visitors to experience the freedom of outdoor living whilst receiving some well deserved rest. this includes multiple commodities that make the experience resemble glamping – luxury camping – much more than anything else.

comprising a site of over 15,000m², ‘around follie’ is a modern take on the traditional campground. it features expansive lawns that accommodate tents, a deck camping zone, public cooking and shower rooms, a caravan park, lodges, and even more space for outdoor activities like swimming. the caravan park includes three 1970’s vintage air streams to rekindle the feeling of freedom from that decade.



following the paved pathways through the site, pryamidal-shaped huts rise up from the green lawns. created by korea design group Z_lab, these lodges are each designed with a different layout that is composed of a living room, kitchen and spiral staircase that leads up to a bedroom. depending on which accommodation is chosen, the huts can feature double-story indoor pools and even bathtubs on the roof decks.
