The adorable Seelenkiste is a tiny country hideaway in the lush Greek landscape, designed by allergutendinge. The tranquil retreat combines a mini observatory and a sleeping section, designed for a getaway of personal contemplation. The wooden abode is easily assembled and disassembled, allowing the lucky user to create a dream retreat just about anywhere.
The whimsical Spirit Shelter was designed to create a place of mediation and self reflection, whether in the wilderness or in your own backyard. Clad from wood, the pop up dwelling is neither tree house nor fort, but a place to become refamiliarized with the nature around you.
Inside, the tiny abode has all of the basic comforts of home. Built- in shelving and drawers can hold research materials, journals, supplies, linens or gardening tools. The back wall of the shelter folds out, creating a patio and opening the living area to the elements. A table for two folds out from the wall, creating a work desk or place to dine with two included stools. The sleeping loft meets a large sliding window, giving the illusion of snoozing under the stars, from the comforts of a soft mattress.
The second floor of the shelter, accessible by an inlaid ladder, houses a small desk area meant as an observatory. A large skylight hatch can be opened to flood the interior with day light, as does a front hatch, which opens onto the nature outside, giving a clear view from the desk area. At night, the hatches can be closed to ensure privacy, or protect from the elements. The cozy Seelenkiste can pop up in any landscape to create a serene miniature escape.
