set amid the undulating korean countryside, seoul-based practice archiworkshop has developed a tent village which comprises a series of glamorous camping units. combining the principles of ecology, comfort and modern design, ‘glamping for glampers’ enables guests to establish a closer connection with nature through two distinctive typologies. the first shelter, entitled ‘stacking doughnut’, reflects the circular nature of pebble stones, while ‘modular flow’ is envisioned as an extendable structure which comprises juxtaposed floor plans. both typologies offer flexible, transportable and high-standard accommodation. the units have been named sea, dessert, creek, mountain, cave, forest, river and city.

internally, each tent has a toilet booth with an art wall finish. bespoke furniture, also created by archiworkshop, features folding sofas which become beds during evening hours. shelters are wrapped in a water and fire proof membrane which also protects against UV penetration, while the double-layered skins provide resistance against the region’s harsh climate. guaranteeing absolute water tightness, computer animated surface plans are plotted with 2D cutters and welded with a high frequency technique.

  • Very outstanding and handsome.

  • Very nice project, however I agree that “glamping” is an unfortunate designation here.

  • really nice. it’s a pity they had to call them glamping units, it would almost completely put me off going there.
