It May Look Like a Giant Boulder, But It Most Definitely Is Not

It might look like a rock, but looks can be deceiving.

An architecture firm in Switzerland created a wooden cabin inside an artificial boulder, then installed it in a remote location in the Swiss Alps, GizMag reported.

The unique cabin was built from wood and encased in a concrete shell, according to GizMag.

The design includes a window, skylight and door.

A wood burner and fold down panel which double as a bed and table are also included in the cabin.

A toilet, however, is not among the cabin's features.

According to GizMag, the project was created to host visiting artists.

"The cabin is placed quite high up in the mountain and sleeping up there is a unique experience," architecture firm Bureau A's Leopold Banchini told The Huffington Post.

"The view from the small window is impressive and staying in this minimal wooden box in the middle the nature is almost a monastic experience," he added.
