parisian designer matali crasset has designed ‘les maisons sylvestres’, a collection of four ecological structures situated within le vent des forêts. located in fresnes-au-mont, france, the association is composed of six forest villages who have been hosting modern artists each summer for over ten years. the hotel rooms, which can be rented out between may and september are now nearing completion, with the first two set to be unveiled next month.

the experimental project, brought forth by crasset and the inhabitants and volunteers of the villages, looks to create a place within the forest where the visitor can dually experience and understand the nature and environment.

designed to work with sustainable development in mind, the module structures made from acacia wood, douglas pine and galvanized steel, are foundation free allowing them to be placed in the forest without greatly harming nature or upsetting the ecosystem. four variations of the simple form – ‘chrysalide’, ‘brocard’, ‘champignon’ and ‘nichoir’ – offer transient inhabitants rudimentary comforts in a dwelling that fully intertwines indoor and outdoor spaces.
