Amber Road Trekking Cabin International Design Competition

This project has designed to be a shelter that will be placed between dunes, rocks, sandy beach and pine trees at certain intervals to the coast of Baltic Sea of Latvia. Considering this building as a part of this unique, natural landscape and having the approach of creating a memorable and recognizable building, underlies the basis of the architectural thinking.

The project starts with this idea and continues as a part of landscape, just like an amber stone or sandstone crops.
Building breaks off from ground, step by step and creates a semi-open, protective space The walls, that created the building and different voids, opened in several different levels, accompanies to the changes in the sky, sea, coast and pine trees in different seasons and time periods. The building itself changes and transforms into these unique atmospheres and creates marvelous scenes.

The project aims to create a semi-open area with a rock or a cave atmosphere on the exterior and to create an interactive space for the visitors, inside, in a single space, where they can supply their primary needs such as resting, eating, heating, sleeping and sharing experiences with one another, in a protective environment.
