Unlike most designs of unique buildings/homes/spaces where most would like to stand out, the Ark Shelter in Belgium is trying to blend in and be one with nature as much as possible. Completely self-sustaining and eco-friendly. Pretty cool idea, and talk about minimalism…and that bed tho…*heart eyes emoji*

This is what the architect students had to say about the space:

“We are students of architecture, who put our heads together to rethink the way people live their fast and stressful lives. Today we witness a perpetual evolution of new technologies in the fast forward moving world. It is a never-ending story of daily pressure and continuous deadlines. We were thinking about a way to escape from our stressful lives and to get back to our roots. We believe people will find the break they need by bringing the nature back.”

“The philosophy behind ARK provides a place to live in the wild, back to basics. With the sides folding open, shelter takes in the landscape and becomes an extension of nature. Designed in a way of a low tech architecture, to let users a make effort, to feel a live and understand the rural way of life.”
