Surrounded by trees in the middle of a Portuguese park, the forest hut offers visitors a distance from the hustle and bustle of city life. Pedras Salgadas Park acquired seven small ecological houses from the architectural studio Rebelo de Andrade in which the creators combined minimalism, sustainability and functionality into one. Dark-colored modular houses with an untraditionally sloping roof are planted as precisely as possible between the trees so as not to disturb the surrounding ecosystem unnecessarily. „In the last resort, these houses blend into and are confused with the trees.“
The interior embodies the concept of “less is sometimes more” and therefore do not expect any overly luxurious equipment, but only the basic that one really needs. Such housing, where time seems to stand still, can take on a whole new dimension in the eyes of visitors, who will get not only a charming lair in the Scandinavian style but also a meaningful experience for their urban souls.
