If camping’s not your thing, perhaps you should give Glamping – glamorous camping – a go. These unusual structures are actually luxurious tents designed by ArchiWorkshop for those that can’t leave all the comforts of home behind.
The “glampsite” can be found in a remote area of Yang-Pyeong in South Korea, and offers a unique experience that combines contemporary design with eco-logical virtues.
There are two types of tents available, the Stacking Doughnut (that was apparently inspired by pebble stones) and Modular Flow. Modular Flow is designed so that it can be extended as needed. Both tent types make use of a high quality membrane that provides UV protection, is water-proof (no-duh), and fire resistant. The membrane is also double skinned helping to resist the extreme seasonal Korean weather.
All of the units contain their own toilet booth that has been finished by a local Korean artist. ArchiWorkshop are also responsible for the design of the furniture. Due to the limited interior space, ArchiWorkshop created multifunctional units that act as a seating area during the day, and can be transformed into a bed at night.
